Abstract: This project is estimating the abundance of spot shrimp and determining the structure of the spot shrimp population in Prince William Sound. It augments current Alaska Department of Fish and Game (ADF&G) surveys to determine whether the spot shrimp population is recovering from depletion. Project results and those of ADF&G in 1999 and 2000 indicate a cessation in the apparent decline of spot shrimp abundance in western Prince William Sound that had taken place 1992-98, and a slight increase in the number and weight of spot shrimp per pot in 1999 compared to 1998. The increase was markedly greater in 2000. FY 02 will fund closeout, produce manuscripts, and provide input into the development of a shrimp management plan with ADF&G.
