Abstract: This project will close out Project 02561, which is evaluating the feasibility of developing a community-based forage fish sampling project for GEM. The work in FY 03 will consist of compiling and analyzing information collected during FY 02, and writing a final report. This project is based on previous EVOS projects: APEX (/163, Alaska Predator Ecosystem Experiment) and 02561 and G-030561/Evaluating the Feasibility of Developing a Community-based Forage Fish Sampling Program. It is designed to field-test the hypothesis that residents of oil spill communities can successfully participate in and contribute to forage fish sampling projects by collecting and labeling stomachs from a variety of locally caught predatory fish (e.g., halibut, flounder, cod, lingcod, rockfish, salmon). The study will be conducted during April-August 2003 at Nanwalek and Port Graham on the southeastern shores of Kachemak Bay. Products will include an evaluation of community participation in the sampling efforts and an analysis of the predatory fish stomach contents collected during the project. [NOTE: This project received $17,000 under FY 03 Phase I to compile and analyze information collected during FY 02 and write a final report].
