Skipper Science Partnership and Alaska Fisheries Science Center Assessment Reports 

Skipper Science and the NOAA Alaska Fisheries Science Center (AFSC) have been working together since the fall of 2022 to identify ways that data from Skipper Science observations can be incorporated into their stock assessment reports. As a result of these conversations, Skipper Science data was used in their 2022 Ecosystem Status Report. 

This partnership is just one of the ways in which the data from observations made by fishermen can and is being used in management reports and potentially affect decisions that result from such reports.
