EPA grant to fund sea lamprey testing. Lamprey threaten both the ecosystem and commercial fishing in the Great Lakes

  LANSING — A $392,000 Environmental Protection Agency grant will pay for testing sea lamprey repellent on three to-be-named spawning streams in the state. The project is expected to be completed within the 10 years the EPA requires.
Sea lamprey are attracted to the smell of their young and repulsed by the stench of their dead, said Michael Wagner, lead researcher on the project and an assistant professor of fisheries and wildlife at Michigan State University. http://record-eagle.com/statenews/x1839360630/EPA-grant-to-fund-sea-lamprey-testing
