Prey fish feeling squeeze

Tuesday evening at 7:00 PM at Crossroads at Big Creek, Dr. David “Bo” Bunnell will be giving a talk as part of the Fish Tales Lecture Series. He says that his speech will address the squeeze currently happening to prey fish like alewives and smelt. Fish in the middle of the food chain are smaller than they once were due to the effects of quagga mussels removing plankton, a food source for the prey fish. Bunnell thinks there is another aspect that should be researched as well.

 


Bunnell is worried that the additional stocking set to take place of trophy species like trout, bass, and salmon that feed on prey fish could add further stress to the ecosystem as a whole.
