Abstract: The Herring Disease Program (HDP) is part of a larger integrated effort, the PWS herring survey: Community Involvement, Outreach, Logistics, and Synthesis submitted under the BAA (outlined in a separated proposal by Dr. Scott Pegau), that is intended to identify juvenile rearing bays, measure factors limiting the success of juvenile herring, and provide recommendations for spatial and temporal coverage of future monitoring efforts. Within this integrated effort, the HDP is intended to evaluate the impact of infectious and parasitic diseases on the failed recovery of the PWS herring population by placing special emphasis on disease processes affecting juvenile cohorts. The framework for the 2010 - 2013 HDP involves a combination of field surveillance efforts and laboratory-based empirical disease process studies. Field surveillance efforts will provide continued and expanded infection and disease prevalence data for herring populations in Prince William Sound (PWS), Sitka Sound, and Puget Sound. Additionally, samples from field surveillance efforts will be processed using newly-developed disease forecasting tools to provide annual risk assessments that quantify the potential for future disease epizootics. Empirical disease process studies will provide an understanding of cause and effect epidemiological relationships between the host, pathogen, and environment; understanding of these relationships represents a first step towards developing additional disease forecasting tools. Specific emphasis will be placed on refining our understanding disease processes specific to viral hemorrhagic septicemia (VHS) and ichthyophoniasis, two primary diseases of herring in PWS.
