Summary

These data contain biodata, net catch, and detection records for juvenile sea lamprey sampled in natural streams in Michigan and Quebec, Canada and those stocked into an artificial stream at the USGS Hammond Bay Biological Station for monitoring diel activity. During October 31 through November 9, 2011 scientists collected downstream migrating juvenile sea lamprey from the Little Carp River, Michigan, Lake Superior (46°50'6.34"N 88°28'57.58"W). Collections were permitted by the State of Michigan under the Michigan Department of Natural Resources Scientific Collectors Permit issued to U.S. Geological Survey, Hammond Bay Biological Station December 12, 2007; amended February 23, 2011. Between November 3, 2014 and December 15, 2014, scientists [...]

Purpose

The purpose of this data collection was to determine diel timing of downstream movement for newly metamorphosed juvenile sea lamprey. To date, little has been published to describe the influence of the day–night cycle on juvenile sea lamprey activity or diel patterns for downstream migration. We hypothesized that juvenile sea lamprey would be most active and most likely to undergo downstream migration during periods of darkness. To test that hypothesis we conducted three experiments. First, as a proof-of-concept, we collected downstream migrating juvenile sea lamprey continuously for nine days from a natural stream to determine if downstream movement differed between day and night (Study I). We then monitored downstream movement of PIT-tagged sea lamprey for 42 days in a natural stream to determine timing of downstream movement (Study II) and in an artificial stream under controlled conditions for 88 days to determine daily activity patterns (Study III).
