Local questionnaire on historic size and harvest amounts of Katharina tunicata along the Kenai Peninsula, Alaska: 2003 - 2004

Anne Salomon & Jennifer Ruesink
We investigated the relative roles of natural factors and shoreline harvest leading to localized declines of the black leather chiton, Katharina tunicata, on the Kenai Peninsula, Alaska. Field surveys of the significant predictors of K. tunicata across 11 sites suggest that its current spatial variation is significantly related to human exploitation and sea otter predation. Traditional ecological knowledge further revealed that several benthic marine invertebrates (sea urchin, crab and clams) have declined sequentially, with reduced...
