Facility tours are available for history of sea lamprey invasion, ongoing research
The station participates in a formal research partnership among the USGS, the GLFC, and Michigan State University. Alternative control methods research currently includes topics such as barriers to sea lamprey migration, release of sterilized male sea lampreys to reduce reproduction, and the identification and use of migratory and sex pheromones. Other research focuses on application of lampricides, sea lamprey life history studies, population assessment, and interactions between host species and parasitic sea lampreys. The station also houses the facility operated seasonally by the US Fish and Wildlife Service to sterilize male sea lampreys.
