Abstract: Pink salmon (Oncorhynchus gorbuscha) is a key species in the Prince William Sound marine ecosystem both as juveniles and adults. Huge spring seaward migrations of pink salmon fry function both as dominant predators on zooplankton populations and as important prey items for other fishes and birds. Millions of adult salmon returning from the high seas to spawn and die provide a unique and vital mechanism for transport of nutrients and energy from feeding areas in the North Pacific to near shore waters and upstream areas of Prince William Sound.
