Research Location: Prince William Sound

Restoration Category: Monitoring

Injured Resources Addressed: Intertidal Organisms , Sediments , Subtidal Organisms

Abstract: The shallow subtidal region of Prince William Sound is most noted as a nursery for salmon, king crab, Dungeness crab and shrimps, as herring spawning grounds, and as feeding grounds for sea otters, river otters and many marine birds. Subtidal eelgrass and intertidal beds are important feeding grounds for migratory waterfowl.

The approach for this project, an extension of projects started in 1989 and continuing through 1991, is to monitor the various stages of succession toward stabilization in the eelgrass community by comparing components of oiled and unoiled sites. Sampling the same sites that were previously sampled, and using the same methodologies, the abundance of eelgrass, infauna, amphipods, small and large epifauna, and juvenile Pacific cod will be determined.
