Title: Pigeon Guillemot Restoration Research at the Alaska SeaLife Center

Project Year and Number: 2000: 00327

Other Fiscal Years and Numbers for this Project: 2001: 01327-CLO, 1999: 99327, 1998: 98327

Principal Investigator (PI): Dan Roby, Oregon State University

Assisting Personnel: Andrew Hovey

Research Location: Alaska SeaLife Center, and adjoining areas of Resurrection Bay

Restoration Category: Research

Injured Resources Addressed: Pigeon Guillemot

Abstract: This project tests the feasibility of restoration techniques for pigeon guillemots (e.g., installation of artificial nest sites, use of social attractants, captive propagation and release). It also includes controlled experiments crucial to two other restoration objectives: (a) development of nondestructive biomarkers of petroleum hydrocarbon contamination in seabirds and (b) understanding how dietary factors (prey species composition, prey size, lipid content, feeding frequency) constrain growth, development, and condition at fledging in guillemots and other fish-eating seabirds.
