Influence of upwelling events on larval and juvenile yellow perch project

Major Goals and Objectives

  • Determine the factors that affect the survival of larval yellow perch in Lake Michigan
  • Determine where young of the year yellow perch reside and are transported during the period between when the yolk is absorbed and when they are dispersed
  • Document, based on thermal history in the otoliths and stable isotopes in the muscle whether life histories of alewife or benthic fish are closer to yellow perch thermal life histories
  • Determine the impact of wind-driven movements of water masses on young of the year yellow perch distribution
