Chief Scientist Recommendation: Fund

Chief Scientist Comments: This project will analyze 20 years of historical data on herring egg distribution and ecology and compare them to oceanographic factors in Prince William Sound. This project has high potential, although I have some question about the reliability and variability of the historical data and the strengths of the relationships to the physical data. These questions can only be resolved by undertaking the project.
