    Until the mid-1950’s, a diverse assemblage of deepwater ciscoes including bloater (Coregonus hoyi) inhabited Lake Ontario. Currently, only the shallow-water form of Cisco (C. artedi) remains. The Lake Ontario Committee has established a plan to reestablish a self-sustaining deepwater cisco population within 25 years. The work is supported by the Lake Ontario FCOs and guided by the Strategies for the Reestablishment of Native Deepwater Ciscoes in Lake Ontario.
