Title: Mass-Balance Models of Trophic Fluxes in EVOS-Impacted Areas

Project Year and Number: 1999: 99330-BAA

Other Fiscal Years and Numbers for this Project: 2000: 00330-BAA, 1998: 98330-BAA

Principal Investigator (PI): Thomas Okey, University of British Columbia

Assisting Personnel: Daniel Pauly

Research Location: Prince William Sound, Lower Cook Inlet

Restoration Category: Research

Injured Resources Addressed: Not Specified

Abstract: This project will construct, validate, and disseminate whole food-web models of Prince William Sound and adjacent marine areas affected by the oil spill. These mass-balance models of flows among trophic levels and among ecosystem components are ideally suited to synthesize the extensive information gathered by various research groups since the spill. The FY 99 effort will consist of two main components: (1) the production of a CD-ROM for the public domain, incorporating an interactive graphic version of the Prince William Sound trophic model developed during FY 98 as well as user-friendly databases on the biology and local/traditional knowledge of the marine organisms of Prince William Sound and beyond; and (2) refinements of the shelf model based on preliminary application and user suggestions.
