Title: Evidence and Consequences of Persistent Oil Contamination in Pink Salmon Natal Habitats
Project Year and Number: 2001: 01454-CLO
Other Fiscal Years and Numbers for this Project: 2000: 00454
Principal Investigator (PI): Mark Carls, NOAA
Research Location: Prince William Sound, Little Port Walter
Restoration Category: Research
Injured Resources Addressed: Pink Salmon
Abstract: Reports of persistent oil contamination in natal pink salmon streams in Prince William Sound and adverse biological effects at parts per billion oil concentrations stimulated this study in FY 00. Preliminary results demonstrate evidence of continued hydrocarbon contamination in some previously oiled streams. Fry from Prince William Sound and experimentally dosed fish have been collected for examination of a biomarker, cytochrome P4501A. When analyses are complete, data will be inspected for correlation between the biomarker, growth, predator avoidance, and marine survival. These results will be integrated with past research to reexamine the recovery status of pink salmon and their spawning habitat.
