Monitor and report on levels of contaminants in sport fish and juvenile fish in the Great Lakes

The project will be based on the goal of evaluating the spatial   variations and temporal trends, and understanding the movement of   contaminants primarily in fish of the Great Lakes.  The goal will be   achieved by statistically analysing the data collected by the SFCMP   in conjunction with other complimentary data sets.  Other   mathematical tools will be subsequently employed as per the   requirements.    The evaluation will begin with identifying and utilising appropriate   statistical methods to recognise any statistically significant   spatial patterns and temporal trends in sport fish contaminant   levels. After trends are identified, then comparisons will be made   with related data sets. The results may be used to generalise any   finding that may improve our understanding of the behaviour of   contaminants in the Great Lakes ecosystem.
