Abstract: The NVP study will include assessments of abundance, reproduction, mortality, prey selection, bioindicators, and individual health for sea otters, harlequin ducks, river otters and pigeon guillemots. Measures of population status will be integrated with the abundances and size class distributions of prey species that compose most of their diets. Demography will be examined by comparing population densities and parameters affecting population growth rates between oiled and unoiled sites. Exposure to oil will be assessed by comparing indicators of exposure to oil and individual health between oiled and unoiled sites. Food limitation will be considered by examining population densities and size class structures of dominant prey species.
