Supporting Cisco (Coregonus artedi) Restoration in Northeastern Lake Michigan

Project Overview
Core Areas: 
Abstract: 
Our work will include natural and social science methodologies to paint a picture of the past, present, and future of cisco in northeastern Lake Michigan. Together, we will document the feeding habits of cisco at various life stages, map their current age and population structure, and document stakeholder perspectives on cisco restoration. In the service of environmental justice, we will spend a significant amount of time documenting the perspectives of the Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians’ perspectives on cisco, treaty rights, and their future food security and national sovereignty.
