Title: APEX: Black-Legged Kittiwake Feeding Experiment
Project Year and Number: 1996: 96163-N
Principal Investigator (PI): Marc Romano, US Fish & Wildlife Service
Research Location: PWS/KAP
Restoration Category: Research
Abstract: Declines in the availability of high quality forage fishes (herring, sand lance, capelin) have apparently contributed to the lack of recovery of some fish-eating seabirds (murres, guillemots, murrelets) that were injured by the Exxon Valdez oil spill. This experimental study will test the hypothesis that diet quality (lipid content, energy density, lipid:protein ratio) constrains the growth, development, and survival of young piscivorous seabirds.
