Injured Resources Addressed: Intertidal Organisms , Subsistence

Abstract: This project addresses concerns that octopus and chiton have been depleted by EVOS and that subsistence uses are impaired. The first year (FY95) was to establish the feasibility of working on octopus in the Sound, identify suitable study sites, and evaluate techniques. The second year (FY96) will focus on identifying optimal habitat characteristics in the intertidal and subtidal area where octopus are harvested. Close-out costs are requested in the third year (FY97).
