Principal Investigator (PI): Renate Riffe, Alaska Department of Fish & Game

Assisting Personnel: David Evans

Research Location: Prince William Sound

Restoration Category: General Restoration

Injured Resources Addressed: Pink Salmon

Abstract: There is a growing body of evidence indicating that the oil spill has been at least partially responsible for weak pink salmon returns to Prince William Sound. Pink salmon runs are dominated by hatchery populations, and efforts to restore injured wild populations through selective harvesting of hatchery fish depend upon the availability of data pertaining to the spatial and temporal abundance of wild fish in the different fishing areas of the Sound. This project will provide accurate real-time and post-season estimates of hatchery and wild contributions to commercial harvests by date and fishing district and also to hatchery cost-recovery harvests. This information is important for fisheries managers who must anticipate the effects of fishing strategies on injured populations.
