    The Gulf of Alaska (GOA) is an important region for commercially valuable marine fish and shellfish popula-tions and supports some of the most productive fisheries in the United States. It is also an important spawning area for many fishes and supports a diverse array of larval fish species throughout the early spring to late autumn months.

Recently, researchers collected and analyzed forage fish data. The species is known to breed throughout coastal areas of Alaska and the Russian Far East (North ) and to winter in Southeast Asia (LeeHill & BishopCarey et al. Poole et al. The Alaskan breeding range of Aleutian Terns (Fig.

Of these 4 ranges, the Afognak Lake area of southwestern Afognak Island was considered the major wintering area, supporting or nearly 50 per cent. Aerial surveys were conducted in the Northwestern Gulf of Alaska and southeastern Bering Sea to determine the abundance, distribution, and habitat use patterns of endangered cetaceans and other marine mammals.

Four species of cetaceans listed by the Federal Government as endangered were observed: gray, humpback, finback, and sperm whales.

Marine mammal populations in northern and western Alaska have been affected by changes in the physical environment, with alterations to migratory timing and routes, distribution, abundance, health, and behavior.

Despite these changes, marine mammal populations in the region remain generally healthy and abundant.Lech Stempniewicz, Michał Goc, Dorota Kidawa, Jacek Urbański, Magdalena Hadwiczak, Adrian Zwolicki, Marine birds and mammals foraging in the rapidly deglaciating Arctic fjord - numbers, distribution and habitat preferences, Climatic Change, /s,3 .levels such as fish, marine birds and mammals (Lindeman, ; Platt et al., ; Lenz, ).

Zooplankton abundance and biomass are direct indices of food web structure and carrying capacity for higher trophic level predator species (Mackas, ).
