Petoskey News-Review - Outdoor - Sea lamprey control planned for local rivers, creeks
excerpts from above:
Quote:
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service personnel will apply lampricides to sections of Carp Lake River, Black Mallard, Mulligan Creek and Grace Creek in Emmet and Presque Isle counties to kill sea lamprey larvae burrowed in the stream bottom.
Quote:
Sea lamprey larvae live in certain Great Lakes tributaries and transform to parasitic adults that migrate to the Great Lakes and kill fish. Failure to kill the larvae in streams would result in significant damage to the Great Lakes fishery. Infested tributaries must be treated every three to five years with lampricides to control sea lamprey populations.
