Title: Effect of Herring Egg Distribution and Ecology on Year-Class Strength and Adult Distribution

Project Year and Number: 2000: 00375

Other Fiscal Years and Numbers for this Project: 1999: 99375

Principal Investigator (PI): Evelyn Brown, University of Alaska Fairbanks

Assisting Personnel: Brenda Norcross

Research Location: Prince William Sound

Restoration Category: Research

Injured Resources Addressed: Pacific Herring

Abstract: This project will examine the effect of Pacific herring egg distribution and abundance as well as oceanographic processes on year-class strength and adult distribution. Existing data will be used in the analysis. The findings will aid understanding of stock structure and population dynamics of herring in Prince William Sound. This information will facilitate area-specific targeting of catches and provide maximum conservation of the overall population. The methodology is applicable to other species and areas. This project will provide scientific documentation of unpublished fishery data.
