Data/Report Type:



Kachemak Bay, in Cook Inlet Alaska, is a rich, diverse marine ecosystem and contains all of the estuarine and coastal habitat types found in the Gulf of Alaska. However, the bay has experienced significant long-term and recent environmental and ecological changes. Our ecological assessment and related products brings together diverse information to give numerous stakeholder groups the tools needed to inform coastal management for Kachemak Bay, as well as understanding ecosystem changes along Alaska’s coasts.
