Aquatic Life


The major species found in Alaskan waters in the undeformed region of the 1002 area are the arctic grayling and Dolly Varden.  They are both quite migratory and can be found both in Alaska streams as well as the coastal waters.  They are important components of the aquatic food web, providing food to animals such as bears.

Other species are found in the coastal waters offshore, such as the bowhead whale, important culturally to the Inupiats, and ringed seals, an important food source to polar bears.
