Effects of round goby on Lake Erie littoral zone communities

A monitoring program for round goby, yellow perch, and other forage  fishes was established in the littoral shore area of Lake Erie and  Presque Isle Bay, adjacent to Erie, PA. Fish monitoring will included  seasonal SCUBA transects with an underwater video camera, gill-nets,  and beach seine at eight locations. Variables of interest: fish  abundances and stomach contents. Analyses of round goby, yellow perch,  and other species with high abundances were used to test for evidence  of negative effects of round goby. In addition benthic and plankton  samples were collected at the same time as fish for calculating food  availability.    (round goby); (yellow perch); (Neogobius melanostomus); (Perca  flavescens); (Lake Erie); (AIS); (aquatic invasive species); (ANS);  (aquatic nuisance species); (exotic species)
