My research is looking at the impact of invasive zebra mussels on foodwebs in Minnesota lakes, and specifically the impacts on walleye success. We are doing this by using stable isotope analysis to investigate how foodwebs differ between lakes with and without zebra mussels. We are also studying how mercury levels in walleye may be affected by these foodweb changes.
