Title: Assessment of Risk Caused by Residual Oil in PWS Using P450 Activity in Fishes
Project Year and Number: 1999: 99379
Other Fiscal Years and Numbers for this Project: 2000: 00379-CLO
Principal Investigator (PI): Stephen Jewett, University of Alaska Fairbanks
Research Location: Prince William Sound
Restoration Category: Research
Injured Resources Addressed: Not Specified
Abstract: This project will determine the spatial extent of potential exposure to hydrocarbons in western Prince William Sound by examining P450 activity in two coastal fishes, masked greenling and crescent gunnel. These fishes live and feed in the nearshore zone, and provide an index of exposure for fishes and other vertebrates. In addition, the project will examine the relationship between P450 levels in these fishes, hydrocarbon concentrations in sediments, and hydrocarbon metabolites in these fishes to help determine if exposure is from residual oil from the Exxon Valdez spill.
