  • Description:
    "Scientists from the Alaska Fisheries Science Center's Status of Stocks and Multispecies Assessment (SSMA) Program's Fishery Interaction Team (FIT) organized a workshop on methods for sampling the marine environment under the ice. The workshop was held at the University of Alaska, Fairbanks on 7-8 November 2007. Participants included fish biologists; fisheries acousticians; physical and biological oceanographers; and researchers with expertise in the operation of underwater vehicles, scientific diving, and the logistics of establishing ice camps. The purpose of the workshop was to gather information on state-of-the-art methods for fish and oceanographic surveys of the Beaufort Sea shelf during ice-covered periods...The primary outcome of the workshop was a review of methods and recommendations for a full winter survey that would accomplish the goals of the MMS. In other words, methods suitable for a survey of ice-covered waters over the Beaufort Sea shelf that would replicate, to the extent feasible, the summer survey in ice-free waters are described above. The workshop also provided the opportunity for potential collaborations between institutions and individuals to be identified"--Executive summary.
