Alaska Center: JISAO at the University of Washington was supported to provide for the study of biological and physical factors affecting the recruitment of walleye pollock in the Gulf of Alaska and Bering Sea to improve our ability to predict year class recruitment to the commercial fishery; to study the acoustic properties of fish of the north Pacific, develop visualization tools to increase the understanding of using sound to survey fish populations, investigate equipment and methods used to acoustically enumerate, size, and map fish distributions, and to foster the training of students and researchers in the use of acoustics to assess fish populations; and to provide for the study of food habitats of groundfish, the effects of fishing on the distribution of pollock in the Gulf of Alaska and the distributional behavior of Atka mackerel. Research at CIFAR was conducted on the use of genetic markers to describe the population structure of Pacific Ocean Perch and to use genetics to study the possibility of two species of rougheye rockfish. Northeast Center: Research to support the management of living marine resources. Studies will be conducted to investigate the effects of bottom roughness conditions on the predation of juvenile surfclams by crustaceans, and the accumulation of manganese in lobsters as an indicator of hypoxia-associated stress. Also, research aimed at studying the decline of Atlantic bluefish stocks. Focus on investigating the relationship between bluefish and striped bass populations, changes in bluefish food stocks, whether the bluefish have declined or migrated elsewhere, and other factors which bear upon the status of bluefish and striped bass stocks. Studies to be conducted to investigate fish distribution, population structure, and stock assessment and the analysis of survey data on subsistence fisheries. Evaluation of the potential predation risk posed by starfish to the commercial scallop resource in the Georges Bank area. Continuation of a program which has developed an extensive database on Western North Atlantic right whales and other protected marine species. Southeast Center: Characterizing conditions under which fisheries and cetaceans co-occur along the eastern U.S. coast. Funded research to verify and improve age determination in endangered marine turtle species. Establishing a web-based resource to expand opportunities for under-represented groups in the marine and environmental sciences. Northwest Center: Feeding and growth of juvenile salmonids off the Oregon and Washington coasts; ocean survival of salmonids relative to migrational timing, fish health, predation and oceanographic conditions in the Columbia River plume and adjacent coastal waters; disease and survival of juvenile salmon in the estuarine and nearshore ocean environment; undergraduate and graduate research, groundfish stock assessment and habitat research. Southeast Center: Characterizing conditions under which fisheries and cetaceans co-occur along the eastern U.S. coast. Funded research to verify and improve age determination in endangered marine turtle species. Establishing a web- based resource to expand opportunities for under-represented groups in the marine and environmental sciences. Southwest Center: JIMO at the University of California was supported to provide satellite data processing; research vessel for "Egg and larval fish production from marine ecological reserves" cruise; genetic population structure of central California coastal Salmonid populations; cooperative studies of Pacific Coast salmon; ocean and esturarine physiological ecology of salmon. JIMAR at the University of Hawaii was supported to provide pelagic fisheries visiting scientists program; tropic ecology and structured-associated aggregation behavior in Bigeye and Yellowfin Tuna in Hawaii-based commercial longline fishery; distribution, histories,and

About this section

This section indicates the different types of projects which have been funded in the past. Only projects funded under Project Grants or Direct Payments for Specified Use should be listed here. The examples give potential applicants an idea of the types of projects that may be accepted for funding. The agency should list at least five examples of the most recently funded projects.
