Abstract: In response to a lack of recovery of wildlife populations following the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill (EVOS), and evidence of natural background changes in forage fish abundance, there was a significant effort to document forage fish distribution, abundance, and variability in Prince William Sound (PWS) in the 1990’s. We propose to adopt some of these earlier sampling schemes and protocols to continue monitoring forage fish in Prince William Sound with fishing and acoustic surveys of forage fish, and to measure indices of forage fish condition and foraging success.
