Title: Synthesis of the Toxicological Impacts on Pink Salmon

Project Year and Number: 1998: 98329

Other Fiscal Years and Numbers for this Project: 1999: 99329

Principal Investigator (PI): Jeep Rice, NOAA

Assisting Personnel: None

Research Location: Prince William Sound

Restoration Category: Research

Injured Resources Addressed: Pink Salmon

Abstract: This project will synthesize results of all Trustee Council sponsored studies related to the toxicological damage to pink salmon. Since 1989, seven separate Council-sponsored projects have individually advanced understanding of the effects of the oil spill on pink salmon: past and present potential for oil exposure (Project /194), effects on egg/embryo survival (Project /191A&B), juvenile feeding and growth (Project R4), marine survival and straying of returning adults (Projects /076 and /209), and the possibility that effects are heritable (Project /228). Data from these studies will be drawn upon in order to construct synthetic conclusions regarding the injury to and subsequent recovery of pink salmon. The results of contracted studies by Exxon Corporation will be compared with the Trustee Council studies.
