The sampling team

scientists in water checking floating net pens, collecting data, and releasing the fish back to the lagoon

Detailed Description

The sampling team (Sean Burril of BOEM; Ashley Stanek of USGS ASC and Sarah Laske of USGS ASC) removes individual fish from floating net pens, identify, measure length, and release the fish back to the lagoon. This sampling replicates the methods used in Beaufort Sea lagoons over the last 30 years and allows for comparisons of species composition, catch rate, and length distribution across space and time to understand the how fish communities use the lagoons.
