Title: Pattern and Processes of Population Change in Sea Otters

Project Year and Number: 1999: 99423

Other Fiscal Years and Numbers for this Project: 2003: 030423, 2002: 02423-AM, 2002: 02423, 2001: 01423, 2000: 00423

Principal Investigator (PI): Jim Bodkin, US Geological Survey

Assisting Personnel: Tom Dean

Research Location: Prince William Sound

Restoration Category: Monitoring

Injured Resources Addressed: Sea Otters

Abstract: Prior research has identified sensitive variables for assessing recovery of the nearshore ecosystem in western Prince William Sound through populations of sea otters and their invertebrate prey. Core data collection includes annual surveys of sea otter distribution and abundance and estimates of abundance and size classes of green sea urchins, a key sea otter prey. This project will monitor an injured population and an ecological process to address questions central to recovery of the nearshore ecosystem and will test new approaches to ecosystem monitoring.
