Title: Survival of Adult Murres and Kittiwakes in Relation to Forage Fish Abundance

Project Year and Number: 2000: 00338

Other Fiscal Years and Numbers for this Project: 2001: 01338, 1999: 99338, 1998: 98338

Principal Investigator (PI): John Piatt, US Geological Survey

Assisting Personnel: None

Research Location: Cook Inlet, Gulf of Alaska

Restoration Category: Research

Injured Resources Addressed: Common Murres

Abstract: Some seabird populations damaged by the oil spill continue to decline or are not recovering. In order to understand the ultimate cause of seabird population fluctuations, productivity, recruitment, and adult survival must be measured. Current studies in Project /163 (APEX) are focused on measuring productivity only. Recruitment measurement demands an unrealistic study duration. This project will augment current studies in lower Cook Inlet that relate breeding success and foraging effort to fluctuations in forage fish density by using banding and resighting to quantify the survival of adult common murres and black-legged kittiwakes.
