Abstract: This study has been examining long-term impacts on herring due to the oil spill using field and laboratory measurements. The field component searched for reproductive impacts in PWS stocks and the laboratory portion tested if exposure of various life stages to oil causes damage. This project began following the crash of populations in PWS and represents one of several projects focused on causes of the crash and prospects for recovery.
