Pelagic Ecosystem Function in the San Juan Archipelago

Target Audience: Undergraduate Student
Graduate Student

Institution: Friday Harbor Labs

Institutional Web Link:

Course Description: Now in its 14th year, this very successful apprenticeship, Pelagic Ecosystem Function (PEF), uses the natural laboratory of the waters in the San Juan Archipelago to investigate the workings of a unique pelagic (open water) ecosystem. Friday Harbor is an ideal place for pelagic ecosystem studies because here, inputs from oceanic realms and major river systems are mixed by powerful tidal currents, creating an oceanographically complex habitat that supports a diverse community of plankton, fishes, seabirds, and marine mammals.
