Title: Pristane Monitoring in Mussels and Predators of Juvenile Pink Salmon and Herring

Project Year and Number: 1996: 96195

Other Fiscal Years and Numbers for this Project: 2002: 02195, 2001: 01195, 2000: 00195, 1999: 99195, 1998: 98195, 1997: 97195

Principal Investigator (PI): Jeff Short, NOAA/NMFS Auke Bay Laboratory

Assisting Personnel: Susan Short

Research Location: Prince William Sound

Restoration Category: Monitoring

Injured Resources Addressed: Mussels , Pacific Herring , Pink Salmon

Abstract: This project will measure pristane in predators of juvenile pink salmon and larval herring to determine the dietary dependence of these predators on alternative prey, Neocalanus spp. copepods. This project will also monitor pristane in mussels as an indirect index of potential year-class strength for pink salmon and herring. These results will be used to evaluate the prey-switching hypothesis of the SEA plan and identify critical marine nursery habitat in PWS.
