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.

  • POST-STOCKING BEHAVIOUR, HABITAT USE, AND SURVIVAL OF HATCHERY-REARED NATIVE FISHES USING ACOUSTIC TELEMETRY

    January 1, 2017 to December 31, 2020In ProgressProject

    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.

  • Assessing the potential of selective fish passage using trap-and sort fishways

    March 1, 2017 to February 28, 2021In ProgressProject

    Developing methods of blocking and removing invasive fishes, while allowing the passage of desirable fishes (selective fish passage) is becoming an issue of great importance to fisheries managers in the Great Lakes. We propose to assess the potential for selective fish passage with currently operated trap-and-sort fishways used to remove invasive Sea Lampreys (Petromyzon marinus) and pass desirable fishes. Trap and sort fishways consist of sequential downstream and upstream compartments.

  • SKIN CHEMORECEPTOR ACTIVATION AND MOTOR BEHAVIOR

    January 1, 2017 to December 31, 2019In ProgressProject

    Chemoreception is not restricted to olfaction; solitary chemosensory cells (SCCs) are present in the skin of fish and other aquatic vertebrates, including brook and silver lampreys. With GLFC funding, we have investigated SCCs in the sea lamprey. In adults, these are numerous on cutaneous papillae around the nostril, around the oral disc, around the gill pores, and on the dorsal fins. Depending on their location, SCCs are innervated by different nerves, but their central projection pattern is similar, as each links to motor control centers.
