Executive Director Recommendation: Fund
Executive Director Comments: Fund closeout (final data analysis and report writing) of this project. This project is determining the degree and extent of geographic differences among pink salmon in Prince William Sound based on genetics. Knowing if there are one or multiple stocks among pink salmon in the sound will enable fisheries managers to refine management units and practices to better protect injured wild stocks.
