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

Assisting Personnel: Tom Dean, Max Hoberg, John Stegeman, Bruce Woodin

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.
