In Southeast Alaska, like much of the state, coastal communities depend on commercial and subsistence fisheries for their livelihood.  With such a vast and varied environment, obtaining long-term oceanographic data is challenging, limiting understanding of patterns and the ability to predict long-term change in habitat and distribution of vital Alaskan fish populations. https://alaska-native-news.com/local-partnerships-build-understanding-of-ocean-dynamics-in-southeast-alaska/73734/#google_vignette Federal Register North Pacific Fishery Management Council; Public MeetingA Notice by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration on 04/29/2024 The North Pacific Fishery Management Council (Council) Fishery Monitoring Advisory Committee (FMAC) will meet May 13, 2024 through May 14, 2024. https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2024/04/29/2024-09150/north-pacific-fishery-management-council-public-meeting Draft Supplemental Programmatic Environmental Assessment for Fisheries Research Conducted and Funded by the Alaska Fisheries Science Center; Correction A Notice by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration on 04/29/2024 NMFS is correcting the link that was in the ADDRESSES of the Notice of Availability to the “Draft Supplemental Programmatic Environmental Assessment (SPEA) for Fisheries Research Conducted and Funded by the Alaska Fisheries Science Center.” This notice provides a correction to that website address; all other information is unchanged.
