Abstract: This project would continue work initiated in FY 94 as part of the PWS System Investigation (Project 94320). This particular sub-project would continue to investigate the hypothesis that levels of predation on 0-class pink salmon and herring are modulated each year by the amount of macrozooplankton present during the critical months of April and May (i.e., that large populations of macrozooplankton tend to "shelter" 0-class pink salmon and herring from predation). The project would support data collection efforts to sample and monitor the distribution and composition of PWS macrozooplankton populations in collaboration with the physical oceanography component of the PWS System Investigation.
