Title: Assessment of Spot Shrimp Abundance in PWS

Project Year and Number: 1999: 99401

Other Fiscal Years and Numbers for this Project: 2002: 02401, 2001: 01401, 2000: 00401

Principal Investigator (PI): Chuck O'Clair, NOAA/NMFS Auke Bay Laboratory

Assisting Personnel: Charlie Hughey, Mandy Lindeberg

Research Location: Prince William Sound

Restoration Category: General Restoration

Injured Resources Addressed: Subsistence

Abstract: This project will estimate the abundance of spot shrimp and determine the structure of the spot shrimp population in western Prince William Sound. The project will augment current Alaska Department of Fish and Game surveys to determine whether the spot shrimp population is recovering from depletion. To maintain consistency with the timing of Alaska Department of Fish and Game surveys, the first full sampling cruise will take place in October 1999. In year one, western Prince William Sound will be surveyed for study sites. In years two and three, spot shrimp relative abundance, population structure and reproductive potential will be estimated at the study sites. An added objective in year three will be an estimate of recruitment potential achieved by expanding the depth range of the sampling into shallow water to assess the relative abundance of juveniles. Year four will be closeout, production of manuscripts, and providing input into the development of a shrimp management plan with the Alaska Department of Fish and Game.
