Event Details

Wednesday, April 18, 2018
7 p.m.
This talk focuses on the methods of control utilized on the sea lamprey, an invasive species found in the Great Lakes. The methods used are traps and application of two chemical lampricides. Field studies show the degradation of lampricides by sunlight will only occur in a limited number of long, shallow tributaries and that tons of the lampricides are temporarily stored in a shallow region below the riverbed. Our results are cruicial for evaluating the lifetime of the lampricides in the water.
