Invasive Dreissenid Mussel-Encrusted Acoustic Telemetry Gear

Detailed Description

Invasive dreissenid mussel-encrusted acoustic telemetry gear retrieved from Little Bay de Noc in Lake Michigan. Acoustic telemetry technology allows scientists to track fish movement throughout a water body, such as whitefish and walleye in the case of this project. However, the large network of receivers around the Great Lakes basin comes together through the Great Lakes Acoustic Telemetry Observation System (GLATOS) to benefit numerous projects and track a variety of fish species.
