Abstract: Populations are maintained through successful reproduction; this project is designed to determine if exposure to oil impairs pink salmon reproduction. Under Part A, the ability of the parental generation (P1) to produce offspring (F1) will be measured. The P1 was exposed when they incubated in 1998; the F1 will incubate in clean water beginning in FY 01. Part B extends Part A by measuring the ability of the F1 to produce viable offspring (F2) in 2002. A diminished ability to produce the F2 generation represents a genetic effect transmitted to unexposed generations. Corroborating evidence for parental and genetic effects of oil is increasing. This project will demonstrate the extent of these grave and unanticipated effects of oil pollution. [NOTE: This project also requested funds ($36,000) for FY 03].
