Aquatic Ecology, Sustainable Fisheries and Aquaculture

The health of Lake Erie and its fishery plays a major role in Ohio's economic future

Ohio Sea Grant works hard to help Great Lakes residents and managers understand aquatic ecosystem functions, from nutrient cycling to fish community health and pollution issues. This helps people understand ecosystem changes within the Great Lakes as they arise.

Ohio Sea Grant is also a frequent partner with agencies, academia, and private-sector interests to enhance fishing and understanding of Great Lakes fish populations and ecology. If wild stocks grow scarcer and are more intensively managed, aquaculture might play an ever-increasing role in the Great Lakes food supply and the region’s economy.
