Data available at the onset of this project (population trends and indices of contaminant exposure) raised concern that Barrow's goldeneye populations may have been injured by the oil spill, may not be fully recovered, and may continue to suffer deleterious effects of the spill. This project is designed to critically assess the recovery status of Barrow's goldeneye populations through assemblage and analysis of all existent, relevant data. This work will lead to definition of recovery status, identification of any data gaps limiting understanding of recovery status or impediments to recovery, and, if warranted, proposal of directed research to fill those gaps in subsequent years. Most data analyses were conducted during FY 99; FY 00 funds are requested for final data analyses and compilation of analysis results and other information into the final report and manuscripts.
