Abstract:

Arctic fish are an important subsistence resource for the people living on the North Slope of Alaska. Many research efforts have investigated and monitored fish populations for the purpose of minimizing the impact of oil development on the fish. Many of these studies are in reports to various government agencies and may not be easily accessible. This report provides a general overview of the fish research done and lessons learned in the Alaskan Arctic for use by agencies involved in permitting future development. It allows access to the literature by listing other arctic fish bibliographies and providing species-specific bibliographies. The work focused on eight fish species identified as having ecological, subsistence or recreational value arctic char Salvelinus alpinus, arctic cisco Coregonus autumnalis, arctic polar cod Boreogadus saida, broad whitefish Coregonus nasus, burbot Lota lota, grayling Thymallus sp., least cisco Coregonus sardinella and saffron cod Eleginus gracilis....
