Abstract: This project is for providing aerial survey support to the EVOSTC sponsored Herring Research and Monitoring (HRM) and Gulf Watch Alaska (GWA) programs. For the HRM program the aerial support will be used to help collect herring samples for the genetics project and to provide an aerial index of age-1 herring abundance. For the GWA program the aerial support will be used by the forage fish project. The desire is to provide an aerial index of forage fish abundance and guide the capture efforts of the vessel. In turn the vessel will be providing ground truth of fish types and size of schools for better interpretation of the aerial based forage fish information. This proposal request is strictly for aerial support, all analysis and vessel funding will come from the existing projects. Funding for this project will be managed as a supplement to the HRM Coordination and Logistics project (12120111-O) led by Dr. Pegau.
