Bruce Peninsula at Tobermory to the south west tip of Manitoulin Island array in support of the Huron Erie Walleye Spatial Ecology GLATOS study
June 2014 - October 2016
This project consists of an array of 19 receivers stretching between the northern most tip of the Bruce Peninsula at Tobermory in Ontario to the southern most tip of Manitoulin Island just north west of Fitzwilliams island in Ontario. This project is in support of the Huron Erie Walleye Spatial Ecology GLATOS study done by the USGS and others. This array is meant to discover if any Walleye spawned and tagged in Saginaw Bay of the main basin of Lake Huron in the U.S. move between the main basin into and out of Georgian Bay in Ontario. This array will also record any other tagged fish movements through the Bruce Archipelago into Georgian Bay such as Lake Sturgeon and Lake Trout and may provide insights into these species travel routes as well. The routes into the North Channel of Lake Huron (Detour channel and False Detour channel) have been included in the Huron Erie Walleye Spatial Ecology GLATOS study.
