Invasive Predator Suppression on Critical Spawning Reefs
This project supports the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative and the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement, pursuant to Public Law 112-10. The Nature Conservancy will control invasive round goby and rusty crayfish populations on five reefs in Grand Traverse and Little Traverse Bays in Lake Michigan to increase the survival of eggs and larvae of native reef fish such as lake trout, cisco, and whitefish. The project will employ innovative (seismic gun) invasive species techniques and refine traditional (trapping) methods. Through monitoring, the project will quantify the effectiveness of the treatments and the changes in survival of the three native fish species.
