Arctic Ecosystem Perspectives: A Panel Discussion at the 2014 Alaska Marine Science Symposium

Nov 25, 2013 | Arctic Program | 0 comments

Join the discussion about Arctic marine research at the Alaska Marine Science Symposium on January 21 from 4:00-6:00 pm.

The Arctic Ecosystem Perspectives session at the 2014 Alaska Marine Science Symposium will consist of brief presentations from seven panel members about the exciting results and new research questions emerging from existing multi-disciplinary studies in the Chukchi and Beaufort Seas.  The presentations will be followed by a discussion, and we encourage audience members to participate.  Please join us on Tuesday, January 21 at 4:00 – 6:00 pm at the Hotel Captain Cook.  The table below lists the seven panelists and the titles of their presentations.

WHo we are

Established in 2001, NPRB is a marine research organization that supports pressing fishery management issues or marine ecosystem needs.


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


NPRB comprises a 20 member Board, representing Federal, State, and other entitites while receiving advice from Science and Advisory Panels.


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


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


NPRB staff support 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

NPRB maintains scientific programs designed to address pressing fishery management issues and Alaska marine ecosystem information needs.


NPRB supports a competitive, peer-reviewed annual request for proposal (RFP) process dedicated to marine research in Alaskan waters.

The Arctic Integrated Ecosystem Reserach Program looked at how physical changes in the ocean influence the flow of energy through the marine food web in the Bering Strait, Chukchi Sea, and western Beaufort Sea from 2017-2021.


Supporting science communication, engagement, outreach, and education initiatives for all our research programs.


This program supports new or existing time-series research that enhance the ability to understand the current state of marine ecosystems.

The Bering Sea Project, a partnership between the North Pacific Research Board and the National Science Foundation, sought to understand the impacts of climate change and dynamic sea ice cover on the eastern Bering Sea ecosystem.


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


NPRB supports next generation scientists, researchers, and resource managers to further their studies in relevant fields of marine science and to our mission.

The Gulf of Alaska Project tested three main hypotheses about 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.
