The Identification of Reproductive Pheromones Used by the Round Goby in Michigan Waters Where Survival of Indigenous Fish is Threatened (year 3)

The round goby is an aggressive and prolific nonnative fish currently threatening native economically and ecologically important fish in Michigan lakes and rivers.  This project is the final year of a three year study to identify the structure and function of pheromones by male round gobies to attract reproducing females to nests for spawning in order to assist resource managers in control efforts.
