Title: Harbor Seal Recovery: Effects of Diet on Lipid Metabolism and Health

Project Year and Number: 2002: 02441

Other Fiscal Years and Numbers for this Project: 2001: 01441-CLO, 2000: 00441, 1999: 99441

Principal Investigator (PI): Randall Davis, Texas A&M University

Assisting Personnel: Tammy Adams, Daniel Cowan, Amanda Fuson, Shane Kanatous, Todd Miller, Lori Polasek, Rebecca Watson

Research Location: Prince William Sound and Alaska SeaLife Center

Restoration Category: Research

Injured Resources Addressed: Harbor Seals

Abstract: This project will complete the analysis of samples that were taken by this project in earlier years. In addition, a final report and five manuscripts will be prepared. Analysis of the remaining samples is needed to resolve the temporal scale of changes in fatty acid composition under different diets, and will allow better interpretation of field data for wild harbor seals.
