Abstract: This project will fund a closeout year of data analysis and manuscript preparation for this study of salmon sharks in Prince William Sound. Funding will cover analysis and final write-up of (a) data transmitted from satellite tags deployed on salmon sharks that will be scheduled to transmit during winter and spring of 2002, (b) data transmitted from satellite tags deployed on salmon sharks that will transmit when sharks frequent surface waters during summer, and (c) stomach samples collected during 2001 field sampling and pre-arranged stomach sample collections from the Copper River gillnet fleet and the Prince William Sound salmon seine fleet during the 2001 commercial fishing season. The funding will also cover FY 02 Argos time, NOAA Joint Tariff Agreement costs for satellite tag data recovery, and contracted data analysis. The final report will describe salmon shark movements, habitat utilization, regional fidelity, and diet composition from data collected during the project.
