Title: PWS Food Webs: Structure and Change

Project Year and Number: 2000: 00393-BAA

Other Fiscal Years and Numbers for this Project: 2001: 01393-BAA, 1999: 99393-BAA

Principal Investigator (PI): Tom Kline, Prince William Sound Science Center

Assisting Personnel: Signe Baumann

Research Location: Prince William Sound

Restoration Category: Research

Injured Resources Addressed: Not Specified

Abstract: Recent research has shown that the oceanographic conditions connecting the northern Gulf of Alaska with Prince William Sound may affect recruitment and nutritional processes in fishes. Accordingly, food webs are subject to changes in carbon flow occurring between the Gulf of Alaska and Prince William Sound. This project seeks to (a) conduct retrospective analysis of Gulf of Alaska production shifts since the oil spill and (b) address ECOPATH model validation data gaps. These analyses will enable a better understanding of the ecological role of regime shift processes conjectured to be impeding the natural restoration of populations in Prince William Sound affected by the oil spill.
