Historical and contemporary genetic diversity of coregonus species from Lake Michigan


September 2019 - September 2020


Cisco are an important component of the Great Lakes food web and are a prime target for restoration and reintroduction efforts. Here, we will use a recently developed genomic tool to investigate historic structure of cisco in Lake Michigan. This project is a collaboration between the USGS Great Lakes Science Center and UW-Stevens Point. The results will provide important baseline data that can be used to develop management and restoration strategies for cisco.
