Current Studies

Assess the Socio-Economic Impacts of Huron-Erie Corridor (HEC) Habitat Remediation

Social and economic impacts of fish spawning habitat remediation in the Huron-Erie Corridor (HEC) are important but poorly quantified. The value of walleye, lake whitefish, and lake sturgeon populations, and the people who fish for and study them, to remediation of fish habitat in the HEC could be large but is poorly documented. In 2005, the Downriver Walleye Federation was established by and for sport fishers of walleye in the Detroit River. Likewise, a Sturgeon for Tomorrow chapter for the St. Clair River was established by interested sport fishers in 2011. However, little or nothing about the goals, growth, and socio-economic benefits of those sport fishing organizations has been documented. Analysis of the social and economic impacts of these two organizations, as a way of monitoring the status of walleye and lake sturgeon stocks in the HEC, could be useful to State and Provincial managers of these fishery resources and to GLRI staff who are responsible for remediating BUI 14 in these two rivers.
