Using archival tags to collect information on the depth and temperatures favored by lake trout, this project replicates a 2001-2003 study conducted under a USFWS Great Lakes Fish and Wildlife Restoration Act grant. Information collected under this climate change project will be compared to data collected in the earlier study and will help determine how lake trout are affected by warmer lake temperatures.
