Injured Resources Addressed: Commercial Fishing , Common Murres , Pink Salmon

Abstract: Our proposal requests funding to continue a collaborative synthesis and modeling study designed specifically to fully restore the as yet to be recovered commercial fishery in Prince William Sound, Alaska, through an understanding of ecosystem-level processes that affect fisheries production. Using information obtained by the EVOS TC-sponsored SEA program (1994-99), we are working with Alaska Department of Fish and Game, the regional aquaculture corporations, the Prince William Sound Science Center, local fishing organizations and the Universities of Maryland and Alaska to implement a previously developed pink salmon survival model (PSSM) that we believe will greatly improve resource forecasting and the assessment of ecosystem health. The results of this work are expected to improve the management and enhancement of pink salmon in the region, substantially assisting the recovery of injured commercial fishing services.
