Abstract: In this project, NOAA Restoration Center is providing oversight, management and technical assistance for a harbor protection and harbor clean-up project as well as a snow management/water quality improvement project; both efforts take place in Cordova, AK. The goal of these projects is to improve habitat for the benefit of species impacted by the Exxon Valdez oil spill. Although the 2010 Update to the Injured Resources and Services report did not list Pacific Herring as being habitat limited, we know that restoring intertidal and subtidal habitat will allow this species to better combat the stressors of disease, predation and low recruitment. Habitat that is negatively impacted by harbor activities and contaminated snowmelt will be improved. These restoration projects will benefit herring, which have the status of ‘non recovering’ according to the report, by aiding their recovery.
