Why It's Important:

In the two decades following the Exxon Valdez oil spill (EVOS), it has been recognized that ecosystem recovery from the spill is taking decades. Monitoring information is valuable for assessing recovery of injured species, managing those resources and the services they provide, and informing the communities who depend on the resources. In addition, long-term, consistent, scientific data is critical to allow us to detect and understand ecosystem changes and shifts that directly or indirectly (e.g. through food web relationships) influence the species and services injured by the spill.
