Haak Presents Northeast Fisheries Research on NOAA Webinar

Urban Coast Institute Postdoctoral Researcher Chris Haak provided an update on the Northeast U.S. Regional Marine Fish Habitat Assessment (NRHA) project during the July 13 edition of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Central Library Seminar Series. Launched in 2019, the project evaluated habitat use patterns for marine fish and invertebrate communities on the northeast shelf, relating catch data from the NOAA Fisheries bottom trawl surveys to an array of environmental predictor variables. The team is building a Northeast Regional Habitat Assessment Data Explorer web app to facilitate the analysis, visualization, and exploration of fisheries data and host NRHA products online.
