Coastal wetlands throughout the Great Lakes has been recognized as important areas for fish
production. These wetlands contribute large numbers of prey species, sport and commercial
Large lake fisheries (Herdendorf et al 1986; Herdendorf 1987). Estimates vary on the number of species use the coastal wetlands in the Great Lakes. Whillans (1987) estimated that over 90%

and much work has been done to define AIS technical and communication
