Students involved in this project are monitoring the water quality of the Thunder Bay River Watershed. The students have also built ROVs (Remotely Operated underwater Vehicles) for the purpose of conducting research of zebra mussel populations at shipwreck sites in Lake Huron.
New to their list of invasive species studies is the lesser known invasive rusty crayfish, which disrupts aquatic habitat and displaces native crayfish species. These Sanborn "Rusty Raiders" aim to document the distribution and spread of invasive rusty crayfish in their watershed. CLICK HERE to learn more about the research and work of these Rusty Raiders!
