This data release includes early life stage data for Lake Ontario fishes including egg deposition, larval fish emergence from varied substrates and depths, and horizontal larval fish tow surveys conducted across various habitats. Tables include data from multiple field surveys and lab studies from 2018, 2019, and 2021. Larval tow observations from 2018 are from lake wide sampling in Lake Ontario while egg and larval emergence data are from embayments in U.S. waters of Lake Ontario in 2019 and 2021. Laboratory experiments on egg collection gear were conducted in 2019.
