AKFIN in conjunction with PSMFC has recently increased its support of the North Pacific Fisheries Management Council Staff by providing GIS Support. Historically Council Staff sought ad hoc support or had its own staff member assigned to GIS. The current in-house data support AKFIN provides and the proficient GIS resources available through Pacific States Marine Fisheries Commission provided a straight forward path to GIS support. For the February NPFMC meeting AKFIN-PSMFC provided several hundred maps including streaming monthly Prohibited Species Catch maps for the discussion paper on Bristol Bay red king crab.
