Steller Sea Lion Unmanned Aircraft

Watch the new video just released on the project, hosted and produced by AbundantOceans.

Concern about Steller Sea Lions has led to the closure of significant fishing areas off of the coast of Alaska. Scientific uncertainty and a lack of good data are often cited for the closure. The Alaska seafood industry, working with scientists, engineers and marine mammal experts, is pioneering the use of unmanned aircraft to help fill the information gaps. This video summarizes the most recent research trip in March, 2012.
