Title: Mechanisms of Impact and Potential Recovery of Nearshore Vertebrate Predators (NVP)
Project Year and Number: 1999: 99025
Principal Investigator (PI): Leslie Holland-Bartels , US Geological Survey

Abstract: FY 99 will be dedicated to production of the final report for the Nearshore Vertebrate Predator project. Funds for this year are for data analysis, final report writing, and poster/presentation preparation for the 10 Years After symposium. The Nearshore Vertebrate Predator project is making an integrated assessment of trophic, health, and demographic factors across a suite of apex predators injured by the spill to determine mechanisms constraining recovery and to improve knowledge of the status of recovery. Primary hypotheses are: (1) Recovery of nearshore resources injured by EVOS is limited by recruitment processes; (2) Initial and/or residual oil in benthic habitats and in or on benthic prey organisms has had a limiting effect on the recovery of benthic foraging predators; and (3) EVOS-induced changes in populations of benthic prey species have influenced the recovery of benthic foraging predators.
