Western Alaska Marine Salmon Studies (WAMSS)

WAMSS provides a platform for BSFA to work with National Marine Fisheries Service to complement the efforts, goals and objectives developed by the North Pacific Anadromous Fish Commission for the Bering Aleutian Salmon International Survey. The BASIS program involves international organizations, government agencies and universities from Canada, Japan, Russia and the U.S. The common goal of the organizations involved with BASIS is to understand the mechanisms underlying the effects of environmental variation and density-dependence on salmon carrying capacity in the Bering Sea for sustainable conservation of salmon stocks.

Western Alaska Salmon Investigations (WASI)

WASI provides funds for salmon monitoring projects in western Alaska and Interior river systems. The program focuses on guiding management actions with better biological information and in turn seeks to prevent salmon disasters, meet our treaty obligations with Canada, and rebuild the fisheries. Through WASI, BSFA designs and implements cooperative projects with Alaska Native Tribes and communities in Kotzebue Sound, Norton Sound and the Yukon and Kuskokwim River drainages.
