  author={J. Hoover and S. Adams and K. Killgore},
Abstract : The round goby, Neogobius melanostomus, a native of Eurasia, is spreading throughout the waters of North America. Native to the Black Sea and Caspian Sea systems, the round goby appeared in the St. Clair River, ONT-MI in 1990, and subsequently in the Great Lakes during 1993-1996 (Charlebois et al. 1997). Particular concern exists for the population in southern Lake Michigan and the Calumet River, which is spreading west via the Cal-Sag Channel towards the Des Plaines River (Moy 1997… Expand
