Tracking Fish with Acoustic Telemetry

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on

USGS scientists at the Great Lakes Science Center in Michigan are using acoustic telemetry to describe the movements of fish in the St. Clair-Detroit River system on the border between Michigan and Ontario, Canada. This research will be used to support Great Lakes fishery managers in restoring native species, such as lake sturgeon, and controlling exotic species, such as sea lamprey.
