Title: Fatty Acid Profile and Lipid Class Analysis for Estimating Diet Composition and Quality at Different Trophic Levels

Project Year and Number: 1998: 98347

Other Fiscal Years and Numbers for this Project: 2000: 00347-CLO, 1999: 99347

Principal Investigator (PI): Ron Heintz, NOAA/NMFS Auke Bay Laboratory

Assisting Personnel: Marie Larsen

Research Location: Prince William Sound

Restoration Category: Research

Injured Resources Addressed: Pacific Herring

Abstract: This project will begin the systematic development of fatty acid profiles and lipid class analysis to identify diet differences and quality in predators on several trophic levels. The spatial variability of fatty acid profiles in herring and sand lance will be related to their prey, and the nutritional consequences of dietary differences will be examined. Results of the fish studies will benefit APEX (Project /163) investigators by demonstrating the utility of fatty acid analysis for establishing dietary and energetic differences between aggregates of forage fish.
