Project Information

Title: Chenega Bay Chinook and Silver Salmon (NEPA Compliance)

Project Year and Number: 1993: 93016

Other Fiscal Years and Numbers for this Project: None

Principal Investigator (PI): Malin Babcock

Assisting Personnel: None

Research Location: Prince William Sound

Restoration Category: General Restoration

Injured Resources Addressed: Subsistence

Abstract: Depending upon results from 1992, this project will monitor the recovery of damaged wild streams through timely and accurate estimates of wild pink spawning escapements, quantify the extent of hatchery stock straying into wild salmon streams, and examine the genetic structure of representative salmon populations from throughout PWS, measuring both within and between population diversity. Genetic sampling sites will include those which tagging results indicate are highly susceptible to hatchery straying (see Restoration Science project R60) in order to better clarify putative EVOS impacts on hatchery/wild stock interactions.
