TERC Mysis Shrimp Research

Research vessel trawling for Mysis

Event Date

Tahoe Center for Environmental Sciences

The TERC field crew for the last few years have been performing a solid amount of time in the field at night. When most of us are asleep, they are in Emerald Bay experimenting with the removal of the invasive Mysis shrimp. Our data has shown that if Mysis numbers are reduced, the native zooplankton return in large numbers and help clear particulates from the water. The net result is much improved water clarity. Join TERC staff research and research vessel captain Brant Allen as we embark on a journey to harness Mysis, discover the final results from this multi-year long project., and hear about plans for the future. 

More information coming soon!
