Jean Adams (GLSC, Ann Arbor, Michigan) gave an invited presentation on how tracking sea lamprey wounds can inform fishery managers about lake trout at the Sea Lamprey Wound Assessment Workshop hosted by Michigan State University and the Great Lakes Fishery Commission in Red Cliff, Wisconsin, May 21-22, 2019. Sea lampreys attack lake trout, killing some and leaving a visible wound on others. During the workshop, tribal, state, and federal fisheries professionals came together for a rare, hands-on experience classifying sea lamprey wounds on lake trout.
