An Energy Budget of the Muskegon River Watershed: Macroinvertebrates in the Lower Muskegon River Wetland.

This project is a component of the Muskegon River Initiative, an  existing Great Lakes Fisheries Trust (GLFT) project.  This  collaborative effort draws upon the diverse talents of many  organizations and builds upon existing models, data, and management  tools, to develop a system-wide model.  The model will be used to  perform risk assessment in the Muskegon River Watershed. To quantify  the role of macroinvertebrates in the lower Muskegon River wetland,  three major habitat types were sampled including emergent,  submersed, and floating leaved vegetation during the spring, summer,  and fall of 2  4.  These data will be incorporated into the larger  model to quantify the role that macroinvertebrates play in fish  production of the wetland and surrounding waters.
