WHOI biologist Joel Llopiz finds little shelter in the middle of a lake during a recent field trip to Maine. Llopiz and chemist Amanda Spivak have been studying five lakes that have had obstructions removed in recent years that prevented herring migrations. Llopiz, Spivak, and their team are collecting sediment cores like the one behind Llopiz and water samples to look at how the reintroduction of fish is affecting plankton populations as well as carbon and nutrient cycles in the lakes.
