Susceptibility of Tethered Round Gobies ( Neogobius melanostomus ) to Predation in Habitats With and Without Shelters

  title={Susceptibility of Tethered Round Gobies ( Neogobius melanostomus ) to Predation in Habitats With and Without Shelters},
  author={Rachelle M. Belanger and Lynda D. Corkum},
We determined the susceptibility of the nonindigenous round goby (Neogobius melanostomus) to predation in sandy habitats with and without shelters in Lake St. Clair. Six round gobies were tethered in a 1 m2 area and videotaped in three habitat types: sand without shelters, sand with shelters (flowerpots), and sand without shelters within an enclosure (control). Daytime trials lasted 90 min; there were 20 replicates per treatment. More round gobies were missing from sand habitats without… CONTINUE READING
