Larval Fish Flux between Metzger Marsh and Lake Erie

Objectives:  1) Estimate the total relative density of larval fish exchanged between Lake Erie and Metzger Marsh (net flux).  2) Estimate the relative density of each larval fish taxon exchanged between Lake Erie and Metzger Marsh.  3) Describe the progression of the larval fish assemblage through the season. 4) Correlate the relative abundance of larval fish and their assemblage with measures of environmental factors. 5) Test the outwelling hypothesis on a large-lake system by comparing Metzger Marsh s larval fish assemblage and densities exchanged with Lake Erie under present conditions to pre-restoration assemblage and densities of the degraded marsh.
