|Description||The distribution and abundance of fishes in Alaska Arctic is poorly known, especially for resident species. Only a few arctic watersheds have been the subject of fisheries or water quality investigations. Such information, when it exists, is often difficult to locate because it typically does not exist in digital form. The Aquabase project compiles and digitizes disparate fish and water quality data sets, and serves as a comprehensive information source for use in habitat assessment, modeling activities and for planning industrial activities. The geographic coverage of Aquabase includes all the North Slope drainages located within Arctic NWR and westward to the Kuparuk River (Prudhoe Bay region).
