This project demonstrated that the presence C. botulinum type E will  rarely be present in healthy fish from the Lower Great Lakes, but more  likely present in moribund and recently dead fish. Birds that feed on  moribund and recently dead fish can become intoxicated especially if  they feed on fresh water drum.
