Title: Impacts of the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill on Bottomfish and Shellfish in PWS

Project Year and Number: 1992: FS18

Other Fiscal Years and Numbers for this Project: 1991: FS18, 1990: FS18, 1989: FS18

Principal Investigator (PI): Evan Haynes, NOAA

Assisting Personnel: Mike Murphy, Tom Rutecki, Dan Urban

Research Location: Prince William Sound

Restoration Category: Damage Assessment

Injured Resources Addressed: Subtidal Organisms

Abstract: This project will quantify the injury to the wild salmon stocks of the Prince William Sound from the Exxon Valdez oil spill. Understanding this injury is necessary for continuing fishery management of injured stocks and rational restoration. One of the main tools being developed to reach this goal is a run reconstruction model. This model will be used to estimate production from each of the Prince William Sound wild stock groups, both before and after the oil spill.
