Consequences of Round Goby Invasion for Littoral Zone Communities: Effects on Sculpin and Benthic Invertebrates Project

Major Goals and Objectives

  • Examine diets of sympatric and allopatric populations of mottled sculpins and round gobies
  • Determine the relationship between mottled sculpin and round goby feeding on benthic invertebrate
    communities
  • Assess the role of round gobies as trophic replacements for mottled sculpins
