Abstract: This project will characterize the basic ecology, distribution, and demographics of sand lance in the Gulf of Alaska. Recent declines of upper trophic level species in the Northern Gulf of Alaska have been linked to decreasing availability of forage fishes. Sand lance is the most important forage fish in most nearshore areas of the northern gulf. Despite its importance to commercial fish, seabirds, and marine mammals, little is known or published on the basic biology of this key prey species. In FY 00, the project will focus on finishing reports and submitting publications to peer reviewed journals.
