Fishery biologist Anthony Calabrese and Perry Buddington, a biological aid, examine starfish used in predator control experiments.

5359 thumbnail picture
Chromosomes provide vital clues in studies of coregonid genetics that seek to explain the complex changes in whitefish and cisco stocks of the Great Lakes, and what these changes mean to the fishing industry.
Michigan, Ann Arbor
5360 thumbnail picture
A single parasite (Cyclochaeta) enlarged 150 diameters. The "mouth" may be seen entering one side of the parasite as well as the gear shaped "skeleton". Cyclochaeta is a complex single-celled parasite living on the skin and gills of fish and causing a severe irritation. Epidemics among small fish are frequently caused by this parasite.

Force-feeding of radioactive pellets to fingerling salmon. This was done to study the rates of metabolism of various trace elements introduced orally. Special diet pellets containing standardized amounts of radioisotopes of the trace elements to be studied are loaded into a special feeding tube, the fish anesthesized, and the pellet forced down by a plunger.

Dr. M. M. Ellis, in charge of Interior Fisheries Investigations, making careful physiological measurements, has helped show why waters polluted with industrial or municipal wastes kill fish, and have established minimum concentrations which are lethal to aquatic life.
