Title: PWS Food Webs: Structure and Change
Project Year and Number: 1999: 99393-BAA
Principal Investigator (PI): Tom Kline, Prince William Sound Science Center
Assisting Personnel: Signe Baumann
Research Location: Prince William Sound
Restoration Category: Research
Injured Resources Addressed: Not Specified
Abstract: Recent research has shown that the oceanographic conditions connecting the northern Gulf of Alaska with Prince William Sound may affect recruitment and nutritional processes in fishes. Accordingly, food webs are subject to changes in carbon flow occurring between the Gulf of Alaska and Prince William Sound. This project seeks to (1) conduct retrospective analysis of Gulf of Alaska production shifts since the oil spill and (2) address Ecopath model validation data gaps. These analyses will enable a better understanding of the ecological role of regime shift processes conjectured to be impeding the natural restoration of populations in Prince William Sound affected by the oil spill.
