Discovery
Estimating the True Costs Of Invasive Species in the Great Lakes

Native to northern Europe, the spiny waterflea (Bythotrephes longimanus) was first discovered in Lake Huron in 1984, and spread to all of the Great Lakes by 1987. Scientists think international cargo ships first carried the spiny waterflea to North America in their ballast water. The species has changed the food webs of the Great Lakes by causing declines in native zooplankton through direct predation, thus impacting sport and commercial fisheries.
