Developing Procedures for Utilizing a Sex Pheromone to Increase the Efficacy of the Sterile Male Release Program in Control of Sea Lamprey Populations of the Great Lakes

Michigan State University will lead a team of scientists to improve  the effectiveness of the sea lamprey sterilization program by  increasing the potency of the sex pheromone that sterile males  release. The team will deploy the technique at scale by developing a  procedure to generate large numbers of pheromone-potentiated sterile  males and a protocol for releasing them. Preliminary data indicates  that the success rate of the project would be roughly equivalent to  doubling the current sterile release program.
