Chief Scientist Recommendation: Fund

Chief Scientist Comments: This is the second year of a two-year project that has the possibility of showing the contribution of productivity in the Gulf of Alaska to productivity in Prince William Sound. Information linking the two systems is critical to interpreting how nutrients and carbon from the Alaska Coastal Current may be imported and incorporated in Prince William Sound organisms. This information will be important to long-term management of Prince William Sound fisheries. The cost of the project has increased, in part due to the necessary inclusion of Spring 1995 archived samples.
