Title: Development of Culture Technology to Support Restoration of Herring in Prince William Sound: Use of In Vitro Studies to Validate and Optimize Restoration Actions

Project Year and Number: 2009: 090821

Other Fiscal Years and Numbers for this Project: 2008: 080821, 2007: 070821

Principal Investigator (PI): Tim Linley, MariCal, Inc.

Assisting Personnel: Marlies Betka, Howard Ferren

Research Location: Prince William Sound

Restoration Category: Research

Injured Resources Addressed: Pacific Herring

Abstract: This project will supplement work accomplished with FY2008 funding that supported travel and collaboration with Japanese herring scientists, and investigation of factors affecting egg quality in herring. The supplemental budget will support the translation and synthesis of the Japanese technical manual on herring culture, and permit coordination with other EVOS TC principal investigators to coordinate the inclusion of stock supplementation objectives and activities into the herring restoration actions outlined within the Integrated Herring Restoration Plan (IHRP). Work products include the herring culture technical manual translation, synthesis of this document into a report that will provide a template for evaluating culture methods for use in PWS supplementation, and integration of the proposed methods with supporting science and herring management investigations and actions. The work will be accomplished in Seward and Anchorage, Alaska, and Portland, Maine
