Viral Hemorrhagic Septicemia Monitoring and Assessment (Lake Erie)

The purpose of this project is to learn more about the VHS virus,   which is spreading through the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Seaway,   fatally attacking yellow perch, walleye and 35 other species of   fish. The water attributes (i.e. acidity) are also being tested to   see what role, if any, they play in the spread of viral hemorrhagic   septicemia.    (VHS); (VHSv); (viral hemorrhagic septicemia); (viral haemorrhagic   septicaemia); (viral hemmorrhagic septicemia)
