Chief Scientist Recommendation: Fund
Chief Scientist Comments: This project would document impacts of the oil spill on the subsistence use of intertidal resources in the Chenega Bay and Ouzinkie areas. The documentary film would supplement two previous films funded by the Trustee Council on the spill's impacts to harbor seals and Pacific herring. Fund if funds are available within the Council's target for the work plan.

Executive Director Recommendation: Fund
Executive Director Comments: Fund revised proposal, which incorporates objectives of Project 00449. This project, which is patterned after two previous video projects funded by the Trustee Council (96214/Harbor Seals and 98274/Herring), is designed to contribute to the restoration of intertidal resources and subsistence uses by transmitting local knowledge about these resources to the scientific community and others. The earlier recommendation on this project was to postpone its consideration until FY 01 because some of the items to be addressed in the video (paralytic shellfish poisoning, residual oil in Prince William Sound) would be more appropriately addressed a year from now. However, providing a small amount of start-up funding in FY 00 will allow preproduction activities to take place so that production itself can get underway at the beginning of FY 01.
