Title: Genetic Structure of PWS Pink Salmon

Project Year and Number: 1999: 99196-CLO

Other Fiscal Years and Numbers for this Project: 1998: 98196, 1997: 97196, 1996: 96196

Principal Investigator (PI): Chris Habicht, Alaska Department of Fish & Game

Assisting Personnel: None

Research Location: Prince William Sound

Restoration Category: Research

Injured Resources Addressed: Pink Salmon

Abstract: Previous work found that wild-stock pink salmon suffered direct lethal and sublethal injuries as a result of the oil spill. An understanding of the population structure of pink salmon in Prince William Sound is essential to assess the impact of these injuries on a population basis and to devise and implement management strategies for sustained conservation. Results to date from this study suggest gene flow between pink salmon spawning aggregates can be restricted both spatially (regional and upstream-tidal) and temporally (early-late) within the sound. This proposal covers the final year of laboratory analysis and the statistical analysis of year-three allozyme and mtDNA data.
