Abstract

Our objectives for this study are continued monitoring of zooplankton, invertebrates, fish,and fish diets through a sampling scheme to include additional habitat types. The use of more effective sampling methods will help develop a better understanding of the combined influence of biotic and abiotic factors on fish recruitment in southwestern Lake Michigan. Multiple years of data will allow us to explore multivariate patterns in nearshore fish communities and yellow perch growth in relation to habitat differences, prey availability, and invasive species. This information will provide key insights into nearshore areas with the best growth and survival potential for both native and non-native fish.
