This report resulted from the need to synthesize existing knowledge of the structure of food webs in nearshore marine habitats of northern Puget Sound and the Strait of Juan de Fuca, in order to identify the potential transfer processes of petroleum hydrocarbons through the marine ecosystem of the region. The objectives of this investigation were to: (1) identify the food web structures of biological communities of neritic, shallow sublittoral, and littoral habitats; (2) document seasonal, site, and regional variability in food web structure; (3) identify important predator-prey linkages that could be disrupted by a pollutant, and the potential consequences of disruption to the community; (4) identify the main prey organism groups utilized by economically or ecologically important predators; and (5) identify food chains having the greatest potential for transferring pollutants to higher trophic levels.
