Project Summary

Indigenous and science knowledge holders will attend an ecosystem assessment workshop, which results will contribute over a longer period an Indigenous knowledge perspective of the northern Bering and Chukchi seas. Currently, with support from PICES and ICES, an interdisciplinary and international working group (WG), including Arctic peoples and Indigenous Knowledge holders is being convened to conduct an Integrated Ecosystem Assessment of the Northern Bering Sea-Chukchi Sea (NBS-CS). The goal of this networked international cooperation will be to develop over a three-year period an inventory of existing information, an ecosystem description including both Indigenous and academically generated scientific knowledge, and an integrated assessment of status and trends.
