POPs and stable isotopes in bird and forage fish tissues - Persistent organic pollutant levels in juvenile salmonids, forage fish and their avian predators from Puget Sound and the outer WA coast

Metadata Updated: March 26, 2021

This project is examining contaminant loads of fish prey species of a resident marine bird (Rhinoceros Auklet) breeding in inland waters (Puget Sound) and in the northern California Current (outer Washington coast). It is being conducted by NMFS FTEs, in collaboration with scientists from the State of Washington and University of Puget Sound. Contaminant loads of fish prey as well as the marine bird predators are being assessed in the context of other upper trophic level predators in Puget Sound (Southern resident killer whales; harbor seals; adult salmonids). Scientific manuscripts and technical reports will be the main products.

The target audience includes the Puget Sound Partnership, resource management agencies, stakeholders in the Puget Sound area, and marine scientists in general. This is an on-going, stand-alone project without a firm deadline. POPs and stable isotopes in bird and forage fish tissues.
