Purpose

Stakeholders and fishery managers expressed concern that double-crested cormorant (Phalacrocorax auritus) predation may be a factor in the recent poor survival of sportfish in Saginaw Bay. Data were obtained in order to assess the potential impact of double-crested cormorant predation on the fish community in Saginaw Bay, Lake Huron to inform cormorant management decisions.
