Understanding the response of listed fishes to environmental stressors, with an emphasis on turbidity, in streams and wetlands in the Canadian Great Lakes basin

Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) provided $27,600 in funding through the partnership fund to Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières for their project on responses of species at risk to environmental stressors. The main interaction in question is how water turbidity effects the growth, mortality, fecundity and dispersal of a species. With the results, researchers will be able to determine threshold that each species may have in the face of environmental change. This could then help mitigate threats that are preventing the recovery of species at risk.
