North Pacific Marine Science Organization 2019


PICES 2019: Developing a collaborative, integrated ecosystem survey program to determine climate/ocean mechanisms affecting the productivity and distribution of salmon and associated pelagic fishes across the North Pacific Ocean." In the autumn of 2019, the North Pacific Anadromous Fish Commission successfully completed three days of meetings associated with the 2019 annual conference for the the North Pacific Marine Science Organization (PICES) in Victoria, BC, Canada. Significant funding w;as provided by the British Columbia Salmon Restoration and Innovation Fund (BCSRIF). As an integral part of the International Year of the Salmon, two workshops during the three days convened oceanographers, ichthyologists, climatologists, and resource managers from around the Pacific Rim and abroad to: (i) explore findings from the ground-breaking 2019 winter expedition to the Gulf of Alaska (GoA), the first comprehensive winter expedition examining Pacific salmon in the GoA that successfully established a baseline of environmental and ecosystem-level measurements for future comparisons; and (ii) plan for an expanded Pan-Pacific expedition in March of 2021.'
