Ecosystem Status Reports

Ecosystem Status Reports are produced annually to compile and summarize information about the status of the Alaska marine ecosystems for the North Pacific Fishery Management Council, the scientific community and the public. These reports include ecosystem report cards, ecosystem assessments, and ecosystem and ecosystem-based management indicators that together provide context for ecosystem-based fisheries management in Alaska. There are separate reports for the Eastern Bering Sea, Aleutian Islands, the Gulf of Alaska, and Arctic ecosystems. Since 2017, the Gulf Watch Alaska program has been compiling report contributions using relevant monitoring information on Gulf of Alaska ecosystem status and trends.

For more information about Ecosystem Status Report for the Gulf of Alaska, Bering Sea, and Aleutian Islands visit the NOAA Fisheries ecosystem page.
