Scientists from the U.S. Geological Survey’s (USGS) Lake Erie Biological Station in Sandusky, along with researchers from a wide range of universities, other government agencies and private companies, collected information on a variety of information about Lake Erie, from nutrient content to fish diets and everything in between. The survey, which takes a more comprehensive look at the overall ecosystem instead of focusing on smaller aspects of it, provides baseline data for management efforts and further research into the health and protection of Lake Erie.
