Food Web Linkages in the Aleutian Archipelago

Forage Fish Distribution and Ecology in Core Areas of Predator Distribution


From here we take a ride on the M/V Tiglax, on a research cruise to the Aleutians. This site follows a collaborative forage fish ecology study conducted by US Geological Survey and US Fish and Wildlife survey along the Aleutian Archipelago during the summer of 2006. On this site you can find maps of the study site, photographs of research, species images, predator images, and catch results.
