The North Pacific Research Board (NPRB) was formed in 1997 to recommend marine research activities to the U.S. Secretary of Commerce that better understand the waters surrounding Alaska as they relate to pressing fishery management issues and important ecosystem information needs. NPRB has supported three major ecosystem research programs, over 430 multi-annual projects, more than 60 graduate students, and three long-term monitoring projects. Over 120 different institutions (national and international) have received NPRB funding, resulting in more than 580 peer-reviewed journal publications. Visit www.nprb.org for more information.
