Abstract: This proposal is to provide coordination of the Herring Research and Monitoring (HRM) program. In addition to the coordination efforts, it includes a postdoctoral researcher to analyze the relationships between herring stocks and physical and biological oceanographic conditions. Furthermore, it covers the community involvement and outreach activities of the program. The goal of the project is to provide coordination within the HRM program and with the Gulf Watch Alaska (GWA) and Data Management (DM) programs. The objectives of the project are: 1) Coordinate efforts among the HRM projects to achieve the program objectives, maximize shared resources, ensure timely reporting, and coordinate logistics. 2) Oversee a postdoctoral researcher. 3) Provide outreach and community involvement for the program. The proposed approach follows that used during the Prince William Sound Herring Survey and initial HRM programs. Coordination will primarily be through e-mail and teleconference. The management team of GWA and the lead of DM will be included in the emails to HRM PIs to ensure they are aware of our activities. We also plan joint PI meetings and community involvement activities. The postdoctoral researcher will be recruited in year one and is funded for three years. The focus area of the research was chosen to overlap with the activities of both HRM and GWA programs. Outreach efforts will be focused on providing up-to-date information on the projects and their findings. Community involvement includes regular communications with stakeholders, such as the herring division of the Cordova District Fishermen United and Alaska Department of Fish and Game to stay aware of their findings and observations. We also are planning listening sessions in two of the villages to seek additional local and traditional ecological knowledge.
