The Great Lakes-St. Lawrence Research Inventory

The Great Lakes - St. Lawrence Research Inventory is an interactive, Internet-based, searchable database created as a tool to collect and disseminate up-to-date information about research projects in the Great Lakes - St. Lawrence Region. The Research Inventory allows Great Lakes researchers to identify similar studies, network, share experiences and increase efficiency. It enables managers to examine the impact of research, the interrelationships between research disciplines, the adequacy of research related to government agreements and to link research to policy questions.

Recently Added Projects

  • The Aqueous Photolysis of Niclosamide

    July 1, 2014 to June 30, 2015In Progress

    Our project investigates the direct photolysis of niclosamide in simulated sunlight. We aim to (1) quantify the direct photodegradation rate of niclosamide in sunlight and (2) identify and quantify the photodegradation products.

  • Structure and function of sea lamprey pheromone components (Phase II)

    January 1, 2015 to December 31, 2018In ProgressProject

    Pheromones are essential for a sea lamprey to complete its life cycle, and thus are potential targets for sea lamprey control. It is well established that larval sea lamprey release a migratory pheromone that guides migratory adults to a suitable spawning ground where mature males release a mating pheromone that attracts mature females to their nests. We recently found nesting mature males also likely release a novel territorial pheromone that repels other mature males from entering nest boundaries. These pheromones comprise multiple components and induce highly predictable behaviors.

  • DEVELOPMENT AND TESTING OF GENOMIC MARKERS FOR COREGONUS SPECIES IDENTIFICATION AND POPULATION ASSESSMENT

    January 1, 2015 to June 30, 2017In ProgressProject

    Native species rehabilitation and restoration remains an important goal of management agencies across the Great Lakes. Recent changes to the Great Lakes ecosystem, such as the decline of the invasive Alewife and Rainbow Smelt, present opportunities for the restoration of native coregonines such as Bloater (Coregonus hoyi) and Cisco (C. artedi). Broodstock have been developed for Bloater and Cisco and Bloater have been stocked into L. Ontario for two years. Cisco populations may be rebounding in lakes Huron, Michigan, and Erie. Recent catches of Cisco from L.
