Research Location: Prince William Sound, Kenai Fjords

Restoration Category: Monitoring

Injured Resources Addressed: Killer Whales

Abstract: This project will continue the monitoring of the damaged AB resident pod and the potentially endangered AT1 transient population as well other Prince William Sound/Kenai Fjords killer whales. Monitoring has occurred on a yearly basis since 1984. Methods include the photo-identification of individual whales and acoustic monitoring with remote and vessel-based hydrophone systems. The project continues interpretation of current and previous data as well as data collected with other funds. [NOTE: This project also requested funds for FY 01 ($72,000), FY 03 ($75,000), and FY 04 ($80,000)].
