Fisheries Oceanography Coordinated Investigations FOCI Visualizations
Example of visualizations from FOCI

Understanding the dynamics of fish populations requires cooperative research among scientists from many different disciplines. With this in mind, the FOCI program was established by NOAA in 1984 to examine physical and biological factors that affect walleye pollock fishery in Alaska.
On this page you will find a number of links to visualizations by researchers with the FOCI program.
