Project Details

The goal of this project was to estimate the number of mature whitefish that die annually from natural causes in two populations from both Lake Michigan and Lake Huron in each of three years. Health-related data were gathered on whitefish sampled from these populations, and these data were used to identify possible mechanisms for that mortality, using a comparative approach.
