North Shore Cisco Acoustic Telemetry
Tracking Cisco movements along the North Shore of Lake Superior using acoustic telemetry
September 2022 - September 2027
Cisco are an ecologically and economically important native species in Lake Superior. Thunder Bay and Black Bay currently support a Cisco commercial fishery that primarily targets them during the fall spawn. This project aims to learn about Cisco movement patterns within Thunder Bay and Black Bay. We plan to tag 25 Cisco in both Thunder Bay and Black Bay during the winter of 2023 using V9DT-2x transmitters.
