Kachemak Bay, Alaska, has experienced significant declines in shrimp and crab that have not recovered despite fishery closures. NOAA has designated the bay a Habitat Focus Area, bringing together science, shellfish restoration, and the community to better understand and address challenges from changing conditions. NOAA is working with many partners to study and restore the bay ecosystem, monitor invasive species, and develop risk assessment tools.
