Abstract: Herring stocks collapsed in the years following the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill. The cause of the collapse remains highly controversial, and several empirical and theoretical studies have implicated different factors, including the spill, disease outbreaks, fishing activity, and ecosystem productivity. Herring stocks have not rebounded since the collapse in the early 90's and show no signs of recovery; similarly controversial, varied, and not necessarily mutually exclusive. The work described in this proposal is part of several collaborative proposals to survey herring in PWS, and seeks to monitor the environmental and food climate experienced by herring in order to address the hypothesis that carrying capacity can be limiting the recovery of herring. Observations of environmental conditions and plankton abundance over time will be integrated with observations of herring distributions and energetics, in order to assess how the food climate in Prince William Sound may structure herring populations in space and time.
