Detailed Description

The U.S. Geological Survey Great Lakes Science Center has conducted lake-wide surveys of the fish community in Lake Erie since the 1960s. The resulting data on relative abundance, size, and age of fishes are used by state and provincial agencies to manage Lake Erie fish stocks.
