Antarctic 25th Anniversary Photo Collection
Since 1986, NOAA's Antarctic Ecosystem Research Division (AERD) has provided ecosystem-based research to the U.S. government for the conservation and sustainable management of Antarctic fisheries.
The AERD mission requires extensive field work, both at field stations and aboard ships, which has been managed through the Antarctic Marine Living Resources (AMLR) Program for over 25 years. Through the years, scientists collecting data in the field have also amassed a collection of images that are unique, stunning, and educational.
Photos found in this album are from the Antarctic Peninsula region, showcasing the three AMLR camps, the research vessels, some of the more than 300 scientists involved in this program through its history, and the many species of predator and prey that live in the area.
