Western Alaska - Islands in Change
Western Alaska is experiencing a period of rapid change. Temperatures are warming, the ocean is becoming more acidic, and species are shifting in time and space. Environmental and economic fluctuations caused by a changing environment lead to risks, threats, and impacts, but change can also bring opportunities and new developments/transformations. WAISC seeks to bring scientists, resource managers, industry experts, fishery business enthusiasts, seafood product development/safety specialists and resource users together to share the state-of-the-science, the latest innovations in technology, and local observations, and to discuss the needs and concerns of each stakeholder group.
