Title: Proximate Composition and Fatty Acid Signatures of Selected Forage Fish Species in PWS

Project Year and Number: 1995: 95121

Other Fiscal Years and Numbers for this Project: None

Principal Investigator (PI): Graham Worthy, University of Central Florida

Assisting Personnel: Alan Abend, Thomas Boutton, Luis Cifuentes, Sara Iverson, Tamara Miculka

Research Location: Prince William Sound

Restoration Category: Research

Injured Resources Addressed: Pacific Herring

Abstract: This project would provide baseline diet, energy, and trophic level data of fish species which are the prey of marine mammals and birds in PWS in order to provide background data necessary for future studies of food web dynamics and ecology of food resources used by many species (whales, seals, birds and fish). The project would make use of isotope analysis, fatty acid analysis and stable isotope-fatty acid analysis.
