Event Title

The Seattle Aquarium’s collaborative conservation research programs in the Salish Sea

Presentation Abstract

The Seattle Aquarium’s formal research program, the Seattle Aquarium Research Center for Conservation and Husbandry (SEARCCH), was launched in 2002 and includes over 14 concurrent research projects ranging from marine mammals and sharks to octopus and seastars. The aquarium has been conducting collaborative research projects on fish, marine mammal and invertebrate population status and health in the Salish Sea for over a decade. The projects highlighted here include sea otter, rockfish, sixgill shark, giant Pacific octopus and seastars. Partners include federal and state government biologists from the United States Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS), United States Geological Survey (USGS), National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association (NOAA) and Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW); university biologists from the University of Washington, California State University Humboldt, University of California at Davis and Cornell University; and accredited non-profit institutions such as Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium, Vancouver Aquarium, Oregon Coast Aquarium, Aquarium of the Bay and Monterey Bay Aquarium. Each of the projects goals, methods and results will be discussed briefly to highlight the benefit of long term collaborative research.
