Age determination manual of the Alaska Fisheries Science Center Age and Growth Program( )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Age and Growth Program at the Alaska Fisheries Science Center is tasked with providing age data in order to improve the basic understanding of the ecology and fisheries dynamics of Alaskan fish species. The primary focus of the Age and Growth Program is to estimate ages from otoliths and other calcified structures for age-structured modeling of commercially exploited stocks; however, the program has recently expanded its interests to include numerous studies on topics ranging from age estimate validation to the growth and life-history of non-target species. Because so many applications rely upon age data and particularly upon assurances as to their accuracy and precision, the Age and Growth Program has developed this practical guide to document the age determination of key groundfish species from Alaskan waters. The main objective of this manual is to describe techniques specific to the age determination of commercially and ecologically important species studied by the Age and Growth Program. The manual also provides general background information on otolith morphology, dissection, and preparation, as well as descriptions of methods used to measure precision and accuracy of age estimates. This manual is intended not only as a reference for age readers at the AFSC and other laboratories, but also to give insight into the quality of age estimates to scientists who routinely use such data
Hot branding : a technique for long-term marking of pinnipeds by Richard L Merrick( )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hot branding provides a marking technique that meets the criteria to identify pinnipeds in long-term studies of population dynamics. Steller's sea lion pups were branded in 1987 to 1989 at rookeries in Alaska and Russia (Kuril Islands). This study reports on resightings of those pups at Marmot Island, Alaska (located east of Afognak Island) through 1994, although some resightings are located elsewhere

Saltwater sportfishing in Alaska : a summary and description of the Alaska saltwater sportfishing economic survey, 2007 by Daniel Kevin Lew( )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In early 2007, a survey of Alaska saltwater anglers was implemented to collect information on saltwater fishing participation, effort, and preferences of resident and nonresident anglers, focusing on their activities in the 2006 fishing season. The survey was administered to three distinct groups of anglers for which separate survey instruments were developed: non-residents, residents of Southeast Alaska, and all other Alaska residents. This report describes the development, content, and structure of the three survey versions, their implementation, and a summary of the data. The summary highlights several differences between the different angler groups and their saltwater fishing behavior, in particular with respect to where they fish, what species are harvested (caught and retained), trip expenditures, and modes of fishing
