Abstract: The Pacific herring population of Prince William Sound has not recovered from severe population decline in 1993. Viral hemorrhagic septicemia virus and the fungus Ichthyophonus hoferi were identified as the two main diseases in these fish. Prevalence of Ichthyophonus hoferidecreased after 1995, but increased prevalence of viral hemorrhagic septicemia virus in 1997 and 1998 has been associated with delayed recovery. To determine if disease continues to impair recovery, and to document recovery when it occurs, this project will continue to monitor the prevalence of the two major diseases in Pacific herring in Prince William Sound in November 1999 and April 2000.
