In September 2008, NPRB released a request for pre-proposals to begin the process of developing an integrated ecosystem research program focused on the Gulf of Alaska.  Pre-proposals were requested to address the following:

How do environmental and anthropogenic processes, including climate change, affect various trophic levels and dynamical linkages among trophic levels, with particular emphasis on fish and fisheries, marine mammals and seabirds within the Gulf of Alaska?

At first, pre-proposals were sought that proposed to determine and quantify the processes driving upper trophic level populations and to better understand observed and potential future variability therein as they affect key management issues in the North Pacific.  NPRB recognized that to do so comprehensively, monitoring, modeling, retrospective analysis and process studies would need to be integrated.  NPRB suggested that a comparative study, designed to investigate demographic differences at a regional geographic scale, might best elucidate critical control mechanisms for population dynamics of upper trophic level species, and referred the scientific community to animplementation plan.

Once the pre-proposals were reviewed, requests for full proposals for the upper trophic level component were invited, and a request for proposals was released for the other components of the program: forage fish, oceanography and lower trophic levels, and ecosystem modeling components.  Later, NPRB sought proposals on the role of iron in driving primary production in the Gulf of Alaska.  

In October 2011, NPRB released a request for proposals for a data management team for the Gulf of Alaska Project, and in February 2012 proposals were solicited for a communication and outreach team.

The Gulf of Alaska Project began with a pilot season in 2010 and is scheduled to run through January 2015.  The publication of peer-reviewed literature resulting from this project will likely continue throughout 2015 and beyond.

WHo we are
GENERAL INFO

Established in 2001, 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 library and our reports here.

LEADERSHIP

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

PARTNERSHIPS

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

OUTREACH & ENGAGEMENT

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

STAFF

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.

SUBMIT YOUR RESEARCH PRIORITIES

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
INTEGRATED ECOSYSTEM PROGRAMS
SCIENCE FOUNDATION

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

CORE PROGRAM

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.

OUTREACH PROGRAM

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

LONG-TERM MONITORING

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.

INTEGRATED ECOSYSTEM RESEARCH

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

GRADUATE STUDENT RESEARCH AWARDS

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.
