Title: Statistically-Based Sampling Strategies for GOA Ecosystem Trawl Survey Monitoring

Project Year and Number: 2000: 00493

Other Fiscal Years and Numbers for this Project: None

Principal Investigator (PI): Paul Anderson, NOAA/NMFS Kodiak Lab

Assisting Personnel: Jason Blackburn, Alan Johnson

Research Location: Gulf of Alaska, Kodiak Island, lower Cook Inlet

Restoration Category: Monitoring

Injured Resources Addressed: Not Specified

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.
