Alaska Ocean Observing System and Axiom Consulting and Design have teamed up to provide data management services for the Gulf of Alaska Project. They have established a private electronic workspace to facilitate data sharing among the scientists working on the project. They also plan to launch a public website where metadata will be shared in order to facilitate collaboration with others working in the Gulf of Alaska.  The team is helping the scientists to organize their data, author metadata, and create a permanent data archive.  To read the full statement of work for this project, click here.

General Info

NPRB is a marine research organization that supports pressing fishery management issues or marine ecosystem needs.

Reports & Publications

More than 600 peer-reviewed publications have been produced through NPRB-funded research. Browse our reports here.


A 20 member Board, representing Federal, State, and other entitites receiving advice from Science and Advisory Panels.


Looking to partner? NPRB welcomes partnerships to co-fund research in areas of common interest and across its programs.

Outreach & Engagement

NPRB engages with a broad and diverse set of Alaskan stakeholders and audiences, from coastal communities to academia.


Supporting the Board, Science, and Advisory Panels for funding decisions, science priorities, recommendations, and program management.

Funding Available

The Core Program offers year-round funding with flexible rolling submission options.


NPRB staff begins developing draft research priorities for the Core Program in late July and August. Submit before July 2nd to be considered for the current year’s RFP development. 

Our Programs

Science Foundation

Research programs addressing pressing fishery management issues and Alaska marine ecosystem information needs.

Integrated Ecosystem Research

These are large-scale interdisciplinary ecosystem-based programs, requiring multiple agency coordination, collaboration, and investigation.

Outreach Program

Science communication, engagement, outreach, and education initiatives for NPRB programs.


A competitive, peer-reviewed annual request for proposal (RFP) process dedicated to Alaska marine research.




Supporting next generation scientists, researchers, and resource managers to further studies in marine science and to our mission.

Long-Term Monitoring

These are new or existing time-series projects that enhance the ability to understand the current state of marine ecosystems.

Examining how physical changes in the ocean influenced the flow of energy through the marine food web in the Bering Strait, Chukchi Sea, and western Beaufort Sea.

Studying the survival and recruitment of five focal groundfish species (Pacific cod, Pacific ocean perch, walleye pollock, arrowtooth flounder, sablefish) during their first year of life.

Understanding the impacts of climate change and dynamic sea ice cover on the eastern Bering Sea ecosystem in partnership with the National Science Foundation.


Bering Sea

COMING SOON! Focusing on the northern Bering Sea and will include consideration of upstream and downstream ecosystems in the southeastern Bering Sea, western Bering Sea, and Chukchi Sea.
