Great Lakes Environmental Protection and Resource Management Initiatives - Rapid Response Plan for Great Lakes Aquatic Invasions

admin
Project
In progress
A Rapid Response Plan for Great Lakes Aquatic Invasions will enhance mitigation prospects and slow the spread of such species.  Currently, no protocol allows immediate implementation of appropriate eradication/control measures when a new invasive species is discovered.  The absence of a protocol has been problematic in the Great Lakes-St.

Magnitude and potential causes of mortality in four lake whitefish populations in Lakes Michigan and Huron: A Multidisciplinary Approach

admin
Project
In progress
We will estimate the number of mature whitefish that die annually from natural causes in two populations from each of lakes Michigan and Huron in each of three years.  We will also gather health related data on whitefish sampled from these populations.
