How are Sea Lamprey Controlled?
Type: Talk or Demonstration
The sea lamprey is an incredibly destructive invasive species, but the good news is they can be controlled. Sea Lampreys spend a significant portion of their lives in tributaries as filter feeding larvae, so sea lamprey control begins when biologists assess tributaries to determine which ones contain larval sea lampreys. Larval assessment is critical in determining the presence, distribution, size structure, and abundance of larval sea lampreys in infested tributaries. The primary method to control sea lampreys is the application of the lampricide. Come see real lampreys in person!
