Title: Fatty Acid Profile and Lipid Class Analysis for Estimating Diet Composition and Quality at Different Trophic Levels
Project Year and Number: 1998: 98347
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.
