Marine Regions Boundary Data for the Bering Sea Shelf and Slope


This dataset contains data and documentation on the agreed-upon marine region boundaries for the Bering Sea Project study area. These data are intended to facilitate analysis and collaboration between researchers who are working on different parts of the ecosystem as part of the Bering Sea Project. The regions' boundary data are based on observed oceanography, bathymetry, benthic fauna, fish, seabird and marine mammal distribution, as well as established survey strata and ecological domains (for the Pribilof Islands).
