We are pleased to announce a new project being led by the University of Washington (JISAO) and the Alaska Fisheries Science Center (AFSC) to examine the relationships between northern fur seals, walleye pollock, and climate change in the Bering Sea. The project webpage, including a downloadable two-pager summary of the project is here<http://www.lenfestocean.org/en/research-projects/quantifying-relationships-of-northern-fur-seals-pollock-and-climate-change-in-alaska>.

In this project, a team of researchers led by Dr. Jeremy Sterling will develop a new spatially explicit bioenergetic model to estimate the dietary needs of northern fur seals and link this model to AFSC/JISAO's bioenergetic model of the Bering Sea (FEAST) and AFSC's multi-species stock assessment model (CEATTLE) to estimate past, current, and future diets given different climate and fishing scenarios. The project began 24 February 2018, will span the next three years, and is funded by the Lenfest Ocean Program with in kind support from AFSC. Please join us for a webinar featuring the research team to discuss the project, and answer any questions on Wednesday, July 25 at 10:00 AM Alaska time/11:00 AM Pacific time/2:00 PM Eastern time.
