My current project is to test if the stream of origin of parasitic sea lampreys can be identified using statolith microchemistry. Sea lampreys undergo a radical metamorphosis at the end of their larval stage that might affect our interpretation of statolith microchemistry. I am tracking changes in statolith microchemistry and structure during metamorphosis. This project is funded by the Great Lakes Fishery Commission.
