Title: Pacific Herring Productivity Dependencies in the PWS Ecosystem Determined With Natural Stable Isotope Tracers

Project Year and Number: 1998: 98311

Other Fiscal Years and Numbers for this Project: 1999: 99311

Principal Investigator (PI): Tom Kline, Prince William Sound Science Center

Assisting Personnel: None

Research Location: Prince William Sound

Restoration Category: Research

Injured Resources Addressed: Commercial Fishing , Pacific Herring

Abstract: Research conducted under the Sound Ecosystem Assessment project (SEA, /320) has shown that Pacific herring have significant dependence on Gulf of Alaska carbon. Accordingly, herring are subject to changes in carbon flow occurring between the Gulf of Alaska and Prince William Sound. The first step in understanding how this fundamental environmental process affects herring recruitment is to isotopically analyze a time series of herring for which energetic data have been collected. This will expand upon the data series available from SEA, providing a total four-year time period corresponding to one period in the cyclicity of herring population abundance in Prince William Sound.
