Summary

Coordinate locations for historical spawning locations of Lake Whitefish (Coregonus clupeaformis) and Cisco (Coregonus artedi) were summarized using ArcGIS 10.5. There were 30 sites for Cisco and 78 sites for Lake Whitefish documented across the Lake Erie basin, including the Detroit River, Lake St. Clair, and the St. Clair River. Data came from published and unpublished sources cited in the Goodyear et al. Spawning Atlas (1982). Locations described as having the presence of eggs or spawning fish were included in the table.
