Title: Assessment of Spot Shrimp Abundance in PWS

Project Year and Number: 2001: 01401

Other Fiscal Years and Numbers for this Project: 2002: 02401, 2000: 00401, 1999: 99401

Principal Investigator (PI): Chuck O'Clair, NOAA/NMFS Auke Bay Laboratory

Assisting Personnel: Charlie Hughey, Mandy Lindeberg

Research Location: Prince William Sound

Restoration Category: Research

Injured Resources Addressed: Intertidal Organisms

Abstract: This project will determine whether the spot shrimp population in Prince William Sound is recovering from depletion. FY 00 results (October 1999) are consistent with those of the Alaska Department of Fish and Game annual survey and indicate a cessation in the apparent decline of spot shrimp abundance in western Prince William Sound that had taken place from 1992 to 1998. Evidence of the beginning of recovery of the spot shrimp population, though encouraging, is inconclusive. In FY 01, the project will provide a second estimate of the abundance of spot shrimp, and continue the studies of spot shrimp population structure and reproductive potential, to determine whether the indications of population recovery are real. An added objective in FY 01 is an estimate of recruitment potential through assessment of the relative abundance of juveniles. Project closeout in FY 02 will include providing input into the development of a shrimp management plan with the Alaska Department of Fish and Game.
