IN BRIEF - The impact of climate change on Arctic marine ecosystems

Thursday, July 18, 2024

The Alfred Wegener Institute is carrying out an expedition in the Arctic on the historic research vessel and icebreaker RV Polarstern.

An employee from MFRI, population geneticist Dr. Áki Jarl Láruson, is participating in the expedition, working on a project called “The impact of climate change on Arctic marine ecosystems”. During this expedition, multiple samples will be taken at several long-term monitoring sites in the Fram Straight between Svalbard and East Greenland.

Dr. Láruson will attempt to isolate DNA from marine invertebrates to examine the links between changing environments and the inheritance of distinct genetic markers. One key goal of this study will be to identify possible bioindicator species in the Arctic.

The indicator is still behind 2023 and 2022, but the pace of fishing is starting to increase. The progress of the fishing season was discussed at the regular weekly meeting of the headquarters of the Federal Agency for Fisheries.

Fishermen from Kamchatka Krai, who have been the main contributor to the total catch in the Far East in the last decade, have caught 29.5 thousand tons. Second and third place are now occupied by Khabarovsk Krai – 5.7 thousand tons and Magadan Oblast – 2.63 thousand tons.

In the Sakhalin Region, the catch amounted to 1.5 thousand tons, in Primorsky Krai – 1.4 thousand tons, in Chukotka – 195 tons.

In the structure of catches by salmon species, pink salmon came out on top - 32.7 thousand tons (80%) were caught. Next comes sockeye salmon (about 5.3 thousand tons or 13% of catches), chum salmon (2.76 thousand tons or 6.7%), chinook salmon (279 tons or 0.7%). The harvest of masu salmon reached 30 tons, coho salmon - 12 tons.

Fishermen from Khabarovsk Krai, Primorye and Magadan Oblast received an “addition” to the volume of permitted catch of pink salmon due to good approaches and a high level of filling of spawning grounds.
