Restoration Category: Research

Injured Resources Addressed: Harlequin Ducks , Sea Otters

Abstract: Sea otters and harlequin ducks have not fully recovered from the oil spill. This project will explore links between oil exposure and the lack of population recovery, with the intent of understanding constraints to recovery of these species and the nearshore environment. In FY 01, sea otter work will include estimation of age-specific survival rates and monitoring of CYP1A expression. Harlequin duck field studies will examine the relationship between survival and CYP1A. Captive experiments on harlequin ducks will examine the relationships between oil exposure and CYP1A induction, and metabolic and behavioral consequences of exposure. [NOTE: This project also requested funds ($250,000) for FY 03].
