    Description

    This paper explores the many natural, historical, and economic reasons the Commander Islands are an essential focal point for field expedition work and finally for conservation projects in the unique ecosystem of the North Pacific. Around the Commander Islands we can find a biologically productive and diverse marine environment. For example, it is one of the richest areas of seaweeds by species and biomass in the world. However, the number of sea otters has dramatically declined during the last seven years in some parts of the Northern Pacific. This fact clearly displays that something is drastically wrong with the natural functions in the whole ecosystem of the Bering Sea.
