Abstract: This project is an integrated study of mechanisms controlling changes in community structure in the Gulf of Alaska ecosystem. The major goal for this fiscal year is to review the existing Gulf of Alaska small-mesh trawl survey database and develop a statistically based and cost-effective strategy for long-term sampling and future monitoring. It is anticipated that any developed sampling scheme or strategy will then be employed in future monitoring survey designs. Proper and consistent sampling should lead to a more comprehensive understanding of biological-physical coupling and dynamics of the Gulf of Alaska ecosystem.
