Fisheries Science Facility Master PlanThis report presents a Master Plan of the new Fisheries Science Facility, a building (or complex of buildings) which is proposed for construction at the Auke Lake campus, University of Alaska, Juneau. The plan was developed by Kramer, Chin & Mayo, Inc. as consultants to the University. Outlined are the proposed educational curriculum and projected student load for a new Division of Fisheries at the University. Based upon this program of instruction and projected number of students, the building was properly sized and space relationships were developed. Five sites for the new facility were examined and a recommended site was selected and analyzed in further detail. Schematic layouts of the site show proposed locations for buildings, driveways, parking and other service facilities. A preliminary engineering study conducted to find ways to meet the freshwater, seawater and drainage needs is described. A proposed construction schedule is outlined and the architectural character of the buildings is described. In the Plan, as presented, it is proposed that a $6.6 million structure be built which will enclose 28,000 gross square feet and require about a 3.5-acre site. Phase I costs are estimated to be $1.8 million and is scheduled for occupancy in 1977. The overall conclusion of the report is that the proposed facility has the potential, primarily because of its location, to become an educational and research complex which will be internationally recognized as unique in the field of fisheries.
Pilot investigation into the age structure of market squid, Doryteuthis opalescens, in the Gulf of AlaskaThe objective of my URECA funded project was to conduct a pilot investigation that aimed to provide a data set of the age, size, and maturity of market squid, Doryteuthis opalescens, collected in the Gulf of Alaska. The information I collected was used to infer the establishment of a residential or transient population of market squid in the sampled area. I hypothesized that squid collected offshore (> 100m from the shoreline) would be less sexually mature and younger than squid collected inshore which supports the establishment of a residential population. In comparison, no significant differences between size, maturity, and age between squid collected offshore and inshore supports that the squid are from a transient population.
