Research Location: Prince William Sound

Restoration Category: General Restoration

Injured Resources Addressed: Mussels , Sediments

Abstract: This project is assessing the recovery of 28 mussel beds in Prince William Sound that still had significant concentrations of oil when last sampled in 1995 or 1996. In FY 99, hydrocarbon concentrations are being measured in mussels, other invertebrates, and sediments and densities of mussels and other selected invertebrates are being monitored in these beds. Oiled sediments were replaced with clean sediments in 12 of the beds in 1994. Sampling in 16 beds that were not restored will document rates of natural recovery. In FY 00, the chemical analysis of samples collected in FY 99 will be completed and a final report prepared.
