1 Quinault Indian Nation Integrated Ocean Observing Systems (IOOS) Joe Schumacker, Marine Resources Scientist Quinault Department of Fisheries

2 Treaty Tribes of Washington State Unique Ocean Governance Area Over 20 Treaty Tribes in Western Washington Alone. Treaty-reserved fishing rights in Puget Sound and the Pacific Ocean EEZ. Co-management of fisheries includes co-management of habitat. Quinault co-manages over 3,000 sq. nautical miles of ocean area. Tribes must manage resources for the future. Place-based people’s identity depends on it.

3 Big Ocean: Little Information 10 years ago – assets in the Quinault ocean area few Mostly research directed– often seasonal only. Since New assets off WA include: Sea Gliders, Permanently Moored Deployments, HF Radar, Land-based Monitoring Programs. New assets coming online in Quinault invited to join the Northwest Association of Networked Ocean Observing Systems (NANOOS). NANOOS has integrated most of these and now makes much of this information available in real-time or near real-time.

4 NANOOS Visualization System (NVS)

5 Why is NANOOS Valuable to Quinault? Human Health and Safety Harmful Algal Blooms (HAB’s) Sea Conditions (Weather) Storm Data Tsunami Inundation Maps

6 Ocean Fisheries Salmon Razor Clams Sardines Dungeness Crab Sablefish Halibut

7 HAB’s Toxic Algal Blooms first found in Closed Razor Clam digging - unprecedented in Quinault history. Surf-zone now monitored by Quinault, Quileute and Makah Tribes as part of the ORHAB Project (Olympic Region Harmful Algal Bloom project) NANOOS assets now coming on-line with capability to provide early warning.

8 IOOS 2014 proposal: Operational ecological forecasting of HABs in the Pacific Northwest using an ESP U.S. Department of Commerce | National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration | NOAA Fisheries Modified from Hickey et al Summer/fall good weather Summer/fall weak stormsWinter/early spring strong storms

9 The Environmental Sample Processor (ESP) Advanced, automated, quantitative, in situ, biological sensing system Near real-time data delivery Extended, high frequency, and responsive surveys Early warning of HABs and their toxins U.S. Department of Commerce | National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration | NOAA Fisheries | The NWFSC’s ESP “Friday”

12 Why is NANOOS Valuable to Quinault? Human Health and Safety Harmful Algal Blooms (HAB’s) Sea Conditions (Weather) Storm Data Tsunami Inundation Zone Maps Ecosystem Information NANOOS Makes Data Available For: Hypoxia (“Dead-Zones”) Ocean Acidification Upwelling and Currents Information
