USGS and American Fisheries Society Set to Continue Imperiled Aquatic Fauna Database

On January 24, the American Fisheries Society and USGS-SESC signed a Memorandum of Understanding that enabled the USGS to continue maintaining a public database of fish, crayfish, and snail species that the AFS Endangered Species Committee has determined are imperiled. Panels of experts on each group of aquatic animals review the latest information on populations, distributions, and threats to assign a conservation status ranging from stable to endangered.

USGS DISCOVRE Team Wins Partners in Conservation Award Through BOEM Nomination

USGS-SESC benthic ecologist Dr. Amanda Demopoulos and her team of researchers were part of the award-winning mid-Atlantic Canyons - Pathways to the Abyss project, which received a Partners in Conservation Award from Secretary Jewell on January 16th. The project was nominated by Interior’s Bureau of Ocean Energy Management and involves a number of partners, including USGS, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, nine universities and colleges, the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute, and four other private research organizations, museums and institutes. The benthic ecology team analyzes the diversity of species found in the deep sea floor to build understanding about the biodiversity and food webs of deep-water habitats.
