Skipper Science Partnership

The people seeing the impacts of climate change firsthand often aren’t the decision makers, but those who live by the tides and are out on the water daily. Skipper Science is a new partnership that enables fishermen and users along Alaska’s coastline to report data and observations easily via an app while fishing. The data collected during the summers will be quantified for Alaska’s science-based resource management and delivered to policy makers and fisheries managers to advocate for the health of our fisheries. Sitka Conservation Society is grateful to be collaborating with a variety of partners to utilize this technology to amplify fishermen’s voices statewide.
