Fish Community Objectives for Lake Superior 1. Prevent the introduction of any non-indigenous aquatic Fish Community Objectives for Lake Superior 1. Prevent the introduction of any non-indigenous aquatic nuisance species. 2. Prevent or delay the spread of non-indigenous aquatic nuisance species, where feasible. 3. Eliminate or reduce populations of nonindigenous nuisance species, where feasible. Source: Public Discussion draft, March 2001

Proportion of native and introduced fish species in the Great Lakes Based on Mills Proportion of native and introduced fish species in the Great Lakes Based on Mills et al. 1993, D. A. Jensen (manuscript in prep 2000)

Lake Superior Non-native Species - 32 • • 17 fish (53%) 5 aquatic invertebrates Lake Superior Non-native Species - 32 • • 17 fish (53%) 5 aquatic invertebrates (16%) 4 diseases and parasites* (12%) 6 aquatic plants (19%) 61% arrived since 1960 Jensen, D. A. Manuscript in Preparation 2000

Sources of non-native species in Lake Superior Sources of releases: * 10 ballast water Sources of non-native species in Lake Superior Sources of releases: * 10 ballast water 7 unintentional stocks 6 intentional stocks 5 canals and diversions 4 bait bucket/recreation boats 3 nursery/cultivar 1 biological supply house/aquarium release 1 unknown Total: 32 (8 intentional, 23 unintentional, 1 unknown) * total number >32 because of multiple pathways for several species

Ship ballast, hulls and hull sediments are the primary source of unintentionally introduced nonnative Ship ballast, hulls and hull sediments are the primary source of unintentionally introduced nonnative species in Lake Superior

Ballast Water Management Progress • • • Great Lakes shipping industry voluntary guidelines. Michigan Ballast Water Management Progress • • • Great Lakes shipping industry voluntary guidelines. Michigan enacted legislation. Legislation under consideration in Wisconsin. U. S. Coast Guard regulations for ocean vessels. Great Lakes Panel on ANS, Policy Statement Ballast management technology demonstrations.

Unintentionally Introduced Fish (9) in Lake Superior • • • Ruffe Fourspine stickleback Threespine Unintentionally Introduced Fish (9) in Lake Superior • • • Ruffe Fourspine stickleback Threespine stickleback Round goby Tubenose goby White perch American eel Sea lamprey Alewife ship ballast ship ballast canals/ballast

Ruffe (Gymnocephalus cernuus) • Lake Superior – west half • Lake Huron – at Ruffe (Gymnocephalus cernuus) • Lake Superior – west half • Lake Huron – at Alpena, MI

Threats and Impacts • • Grows rapidly. High reproductive output. Aggressive feeding habits. In Threats and Impacts • • Grows rapidly. High reproductive output. Aggressive feeding habits. In St. Louis River, yellow perch, emerald shiner, and trout perch declined. • Yellow perch growth slower in competition w/ruffe.

Threats and Impacts • • • Dominates spawning sites of other fish. Spawns numerous Threats and Impacts • • • Dominates spawning sites of other fish. Spawns numerous times. Tolerates low DO for several days. Aggressive feeding habits. Feeds on eggs of sculpin, darters, and logperch. • Displaces native bottom-dwelling fish.

Threespine stickleback (Gasterosteus aculeatus) • Marquette Harbor • Black Bay • MN, WI, MI Threespine stickleback (Gasterosteus aculeatus) • Marquette Harbor • Black Bay • MN, WI, MI tributary estuaries

Threats and Impacts • Impacts largely unknown, but may compete w/native sticklebacks. • Feed Threats and Impacts • Impacts largely unknown, but may compete w/native sticklebacks. • Feed on zooplankton, oligochaetes and chironomids. • Inhabits shallow, sandy-bottomed shoreline habitats.

Fourspine stickleback (Apeltes quadracus) • Thunder Bay Harbor Fourspine stickleback (Apeltes quadracus) • Thunder Bay Harbor

White perch (Morone americana) • St. Louis R. estuary • Wisconsin tributary estuaries • White perch (Morone americana) • St. Louis R. estuary • Wisconsin tributary estuaries • Chequamegon Bay • Michigan tributary estuaries

Threats and Impacts • Eggs are an important diet component. • Yellow perch growth Threats and Impacts • Eggs are an important diet component. • Yellow perch growth rates declined in some areas where co-exist. • Hybridize with native white bass in Lake Erie. • Known to overpopulate habitats of native fishes and become stunted.

Alewife (Alosa pseudoharengus) • Widespread but scarce Alewife (Alosa pseudoharengus) • Widespread but scarce

Threats and Impacts • A diet rich in alewifes may result in a thiamine Threats and Impacts • A diet rich in alewifes may result in a thiamine deficiency in predators disrupting their reproduction. • Effective predators of lake trout fry. • Populations can explode without predation.

American eel (Anguilla rostrata) • St. Louis R. estuary • Nemadji R. • Black American eel (Anguilla rostrata) • St. Louis R. estuary • Nemadji R. • Black Bay
