Species Shifts: What They Mean for Alaskans, and How We Can Adapt
- Price: Free
Alaska’s environment is changing, in part due to global climate forces, and the mix of species that inhabit our seas and lands is changing along with it. Salmon, cod, and pollock increased in the 1970s; shrimp, crab, and seabirds have decreased; possibly damaging invasive species have been introduced; and range extensions have occurred. In response to changes, Alaska fishermen and hunters may have to adjust harvesting expectations to account for decreased or increased availability.
