Title: Surf Scoter Life History and Ecology: Linking Satellite Technology with Traditional Knowledge to Conserve the Resource

Project Year and Number: 1999: 99273

Other Fiscal Years and Numbers for this Project: 2001: 01273-CLO, 2000: 00273, 1998: 98273

Principal Investigator (PI): Dan Rosenberg, Alaska Department of Fish & Game

Assisting Personnel: Doug Hill, Mike Petrula

Research Location: Prince William Sound, Lower Cook Inlet

Restoration Category: Research

Injured Resources Addressed: Subsistence

Abstract: This project will study the life history and ecology of surf scoters that over-winter in or migrate through Prince William Sound and lower Cook Inlet. This information will be integrated with traditional ecological knowledge. Scoter populations in Alaska are declining. Communities in Prince William Sound and lower Cook Inlet harvest scoters for subsistence purposes. Scoters are among the least studied of North American waterfowl and little is known of their life history, ecology, and distribution. Scoters will be marked with surgically implanted satellite transmitters to define the breeding areas, molting areas, and wintering areas. Local participation will be solicited and information will be conveyed to local residents through the Chugach School District and Youth Area Watch project (\210).
