SCOPE STATEMENT OF WORK (SOW) DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE (DOC) NATIONAL OCEANIC AND ATMOSPHERIC ADMINISTRATION (NOAA) OFFICE OF NATIONAL MARINE SANCTUARIES (ONMS) PAPAHĀNAUMOKUĀKEA MARINE NATIONAL MONUMENT (PMNM) ASSESSMENT OF MESOPHOTIC CORAL ECOSYSTEM FISH DIVERSITY ON PACIFIC REEFS PURCHASE REQUEST NCNM7300-15-01026 Introduction The National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is a United States Federal agency dedicated to understanding and predicting changes in the Earth's environment and to conserve and manage coastal and marine resources to meet United States economic, social, and environmental needs. NOAA is the steward of national coastal and marine environments. In coordination with federal, state, local, tribal and international authorities, NOAA manages the use of these environments, regulating fisheries and marine protected areas as well as protecting threatened and endangered marine species. The ONMS, established in 1972 by the NMSA and administered by NOAA, protects a network of 15 special marine and freshwater areas. The goal of the NMSA is to set aside and manage areas for resource protection, research, enhanced public education, and compatible public and private uses. Management activities for each sanctuary are detailed in site-specific management plans which outline regulatory goals, describe boundaries, identify staffing and budget needs, set priorities and performance measures for resource protection, research, and education programs. In 2001, NOAA initiated a process to consider designating the waters surrounding the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands (NWHI) as a National Marine Sanctuary. On June 15, 2006, George Bush established the Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument (Monument) by Proclamation 8031 to ensure the comprehensive, strong, and lasting protection of the coral reef ecosystem and related marine resources and species of the region. These waters contain a large portion of all coral reefs found in the United States' jurisdiction and support more than 7,000 marine species, of which one quarter are unique to the Hawaiian Islands chain. The 1,200-mile stretch of remote islands, atolls and reefs, is also one the most remote archipelagos in the world. At a time when ocean resources around the world are in major decline, the designation of the Monument enabled nearly 140,000 square miles of the region to receive the highest form of marine environmental protection in the United States, creating one of the largest protected marine areas in the world. On July 30, 2010 the Monument was inscribed as a mixed World Heritage Site for its outstanding natural and cultural attributes. A designation of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), World Heritage sites safeguard for humanity the most universal and significant aspects of our global natural and cultural heritage. Objective: Pacific coral reefs host greater macroscopic biodiversity than any other marine habitat. Photosynthetic corals have recently been documented to depths of at least 165m in the Pacific, yet only the upper 30m is well studied. Deeper reefs are largely unexplored, and biodiversity at depths of 30-200m remains almost completely unknown. These Mesophotic Coral Ecosystems (MCEs) have recently been prioritized for study due to the growing realization that their fauna are both diverse and unique, and also face growing threats. The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) has identified this ecosystem as a conservation priority for reef fishes. The goal of this contract is to characterize the MCE fish fauna of the NWHI. PMNM's Monument Management Plan and Natural Resources Science Plan identify characterization of mesophotic reefs as a high priority science item, and both plans contain specific activities intended to fill this critical information gap. This contract is intended to secure expertise in mesophotic ichthyology to assist PMNM in meeting these goals. The primary activity will be technical trimix dives from small boats during annual PMNM research cruises aboard NOAA research vessels. The depths of dives will range between 10-35m (conventional scuba) and 35-100m (closed-circuit rebreathers). Divers will make presence/absence notes on fishes encountered and will also collect voucher specimens or photo/video vouchers as appropriate to confirm visual identifications, as well as to confirm new geographic records or collect new species. This task requires a high level of taxonomic expertise in deep-water coral reef fishes, as well as a high level of proficiency in technical diving techniques. Scope of Work The contractor will work with Monument staff to provide the following services and products: 1. Participation in technical diving-based assessments of mesophotic coral ecosystem fish communities (estimated 240 hours per year) 2. Identification of fishes observed at mesophotic depths, including known and undescribed species, geographic range extensions, and depth range extensions 3. Catalog support and archiving (estimated 40 hours per year) 4. Museum support, including accession of specimens to research collections, and curatorial support (estimated 40 hours per year) 5. Preparation of manuscripts on mesophotic coral ecosystems and technical diving technologies for submission to peer-reviewed journals (estimated 100 hours per year) 6. Provide expertise in mesophotic coral ecosystems in support of other ONMS Pacific Island Region (PIR) sites, including the National Marine Sanctuary of American Samoa (NMSAS) and the Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary (HIHWNMS) (estimated 20 hours per year) Specific Annual Tasks • Task 1: Evaluation of technical diving equipment and technologies o Field test industry standard closed-circuit trimix dive gear, including life support systems, decompression computers, and ancillary safety gear  Selected system(s) must meet NOAA standards for manned and unmanned testing  Systems include (but are not limited to) Megalodon and Poseidon models  Provide instruction to PMNM staff on the use of recommended life support systems  Participate in cross-training on different makes of closed-circuit rebreathers as required by the NOAA Diving Control and Safety Board o Work with the Monument and NOAA's National Ocean Service (NOS) Line Office Dive Officer to help advance technical diving within NOAA, including:  Preparation of dive plans and standard operating procedures  Preparation of guidelines for mixed buddy pair (open-circuit and closed circuit) operations  Preparations of guidelines for mixed model (two different makes of closed circuit rebreathers) operations • Task 2: Field work to document new species, new records, and overall fish biodiversity o Participate in at least one, and not more than two, research cruises or trips to PMNM and ONMS sites with maximum durations of up to 30 days each o Conduct visual in-situ identification presence/absence surveys of mesophotic coral ecosystem fishes o Use digital still and video photography to create photographic vouchers of fishes encountered o Collect, identify, preserve, and photograph fish specimens that may represent new geographic records or undescribed species o Archive and annotate video and still photographs using photo voucher storage system. Include appropriate metadata and other information, including location (latitude/longitude), depth, habitat type, scientific and common names (including junior synonyms) o Provide the Monument with a complete record of fishes recorded on each technical diving research expedition, including associated metadata (location, depth, catalog numbers, etc.) o Opportunistically provide the Monument with a records of biodiversity of other taxa, including (but not limited to) scleractinian corals, gorgonians, sponges, and other macroinvertebrates. • Task 3: Manuscript Preparation and Publication o Prepare manuscripts for peer-reviewed publication (co-authored with PMNM personnel), including (but not limited to) new species descriptions, new records papers, and diving technology and methods papers. Specific deliverables in 2015-2016 include: o A completed manuscript describing the Prognathodes sp. butterflyfish (collected in the NWHI) as new species o A completed manuscript describing Suezichthys sp. wrasse as a new species (if specimens are determined to represent an undescribed species) o A completed manuscript of a checklist of fishes from an ONMS site (TBD) o Prepare required reports under permit(s) issued to NOAA to collect mesophotic fishes in the Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument (Northwestern Hawaiian Islands), including (but not limited to) a list of species collected at each site; latitude and longitude of each site, and all metadata associated with collections.
