Development of Lake Herring Propagation Techniques in the Great Lakes

Building upon UWSP-NADF's earlier success with lake herring propagation this project is exploring the rearing of lake herring from start to finish. 

Some of the research questions involved in this project includes iodophore egg treatment, incubation temperatures, larval feeds, and overall rearing of lake herring for production.

Working collaboratively with USGS Upper Midwest Environmental Sciences Center and USFWS LaCrosse Fish Health Center, this study will help answer questions for future reintroduction of lake herring into the lower Great Lakes.

This research has been organized into a  Lake Herring Intensive Culture Manual.

Funding for this project was recieved from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service through the Great Lakes Fish and Wildlife Restoration Act.
