Getting the Word Out on Great Lakes Science

By Jeff Kart, IJC

The IJC’s Great Lakes Science Advisory Board includes two committees, on Research Coordination and Science Priority.

As you can imagine, there’s a lot of research to coordinate and science to prioritize.

Under the Science Priority Committee, there are five work groups, one of which focuses on Information Coordination and Flow. The goal of the work group’s project is to identify and assess programs and platforms that collect, deliver, and use data and information in the Great Lakes to support management and policy decisions. This is intended to help improve the flow of data and information to decision makers.

The committee recently completed its report on “Information Coordination and Flow in the Great Lakes Basin.” Some highlights of the findings are contained in an infographic below. The full report is available here.

  1. Another deterrent to fish in Lake Eire is the Cororant population. It is completely out of control.
    To claim protection of this species as a result of them being a migratory bird is of itself “foul”.
    They have no known predator, their feces is toxic to the environment as a result wherever they roost becomes a “barren waste land”. They consume 3 obs of fish a day and as a result many small lakes in particular “Lake Manitou” on the Manitoulin Island has a reduced Perch population. Help!!!!
