As part of the Cooperative Science and Monitoring Initiative (CSMI), over 40 scientists from 15 agencies gathered in 2015 to take stock of the health of Lake Michigan. They focused on assessing several critical concerns in Lake Michigan: the lower food web, which may be depleted by invasive zebra and quagga mussels, the condition of key prey fish species, and the impact of contaminants on water quality and in the food chain.
