Title: SEA: Sound Ecosystem Assessment

Project Year and Number: 1997: 97320

Other Fiscal Years and Numbers for this Project: 2002: 02320, 2000: 00320-BAA, 1999: 99320-CLO, 1998: 98320, 1996: 96320, 1995: 95320, 1994: 94320

Principal Investigator (PI): Ted Cooney, University of Alaska Fairbanks

Assisting Personnel: None

Research Location: Prince William Sound

Restoration Category: Research

Injured Resources Addressed: Pacific Herring , Pink Salmon

Abstract: This project is describing mechanisms of mortality for juvenile populations of pink salmon and Pacific herring in Prince William Sound. This information is being used to create a series of dynamic numerical models and an attendant nominal monitoring program to affect the restoration of these species through management options. The mechanisms influencing the distribution and growth rates of juveniles are being investigated by oceanographic studies. Mechanisms of predation and starvation are being studied by fisheries scientists and marine ecologists.
