Subseries contains correspondence, research data, and conference minutes and notes related to the Census of Marine Life subcommittee Future of Marine Animal Populations (FMAP). The Future of Marine Animal Populations project analyzed fishing data and scientific surveys to determine changes in diversity and distribution of marine life. The project, headed by Canadian scientists Ian Jonsen, Heike Lotze, and Boris Worm (and previously by Ransom Myers), identified hot spots of diversity drawn from the Census of Marine Life database and changes in water temperature as one of the most integral determinants in the shaping of marine diversity patterns, while confirming that marine conservation helps to correct the rapid population declines associated with over-exploitation of marine stocks.
Subseries contains correspondence, research data, and conference minutes and notes related to the Census of Marine Life subcommittee Pacific Ocean Shelf Tracking Project (POST). The Pacific Ocean Shelf Tracking project provided the first continent-wide research to acoustically track the migratory patterns of 18 species of marine life familiar to the Pacific coast. The project, led by American-Canadian scientist James Bolger, examined the migratory patterns of salmon, jumbo squid, sturgeon, and other coastal marine life, gathering data on roughly 16,000 individuals. The project served as a smaller-scale precursor of the Ocean Tracking Network.
Subseries contains correspondence, research data, and conference minutes and notes related to the Census of Marine Life subcommittee Tagging of Pacific Predators (TOPP). The Tagging of Pacific Predators project electronically tagged and tracked 4300 different marine predators, including sharks, seals and seabirds, tracing routes taken by these species in their search for ocean prey. The project, headed by American scientists Barbara Black, Steven Bograd, Daniel Costa and Randy Kochevar, discovered that many animals travel entire oceans at a variety of depths, from the poles to the tropics, continent to continent, in the search for food. It was also discovered that many predatory marine creatures migrate along the same oceanic corridors, congregating along their feeding routes.
