Assessing the potential of selective fish passage using trap-and sort fishways

We have shown that 3-keto Petromyzonol sulfate (3kPZS), a pheromone   component initially thought to only induce robust behaviors in   mature female sea lampreys, also attracts immature females and is   effective through the migratory period.  We now hypothesize that   3kPZS is a pheromone component that induces long distance rheotaxis   in spawning-phase females (both mature and immature) over hundreds   of meters and can be used to aggregate them into traps.  Our goal is   to conduct hypothesis-driven and management-driven research to yield   explicit and versatile protocols directly transferable to control   agents describing when and where to use 3kPZS to lure additional   females into barrier-integrated trapping systems.  Management-scale   field trials will be conducted in 2  lamprey-infested streams to   test the efficacy of 3kPZS to direct females into traps.  Barrier-  integrated trapping systems will be the platform on which 3kPZS-  baited trapping is tested.  Absolute capture rate and capture   efficiency of females will be determined and compared to untreated   traps within streams and historical data.  Physical, chemical, and   biological data will be evaluated as potential explanatory variables   of 3kPZS effectiveness.  Experiments will be conducted in close   collaboration with control agents where the PI will train crews of   control agents to bait traps with 3kPZS and collect data.
