Purpose
In Glacier Bay National Park, Alaska there are
ongoing studies of Dungeness Crab (Cancer magister) and Pacific Halibut
(Hippoglosus stenolepis). Scientists of the United States Geological Survey
(USGS) are attempting to ascertain life history, distribution, and abundance,
and to determine the effects of commercial fishing in the park. Statistical
sampling studies suggest that seafloor characteristics and bathymetry affect the
distribution, abundance and behavior of benthic species.
The geophysical surveying done in this and previous  studies will be combined
with existing population and sonic-tracking data sets as well as future sediment
sampling, scuba, submersible, and bottom video camera observations to better
understand Dungeness crab and Pacific halibut habitat relationships.
