Five New Great Lakes Fishery Commission Research Projects

Feb 4: The Great Lakes Fishery Commission (GLFC) has completed five separate research projects related to the Great Lakes fishery, invasive species, and management. The projects deal with the possible factors leading to the dramatic decline of the American eel; luring the round goby into traps by the scent of male round goby urine; the ecology of a diverse and highly threatened group of fishes called the deepwater ciscoes; improving the inclusion of stakeholders in decisions affecting fisheries; and estimating the diets of the sea lamprey, one of the most devastating invasive species in the Great Lakes.
