Blog Cites UMaine Lamprey Eel Research

University of Maine researchers’ work studying lamprey eel spawning was cited in a Bangor Daily News blog about Atlantic salmon by outdoors writer John Holyoke. Holyoke wrote that UMaine researchers informed him that lamprey spawning in tributaries of the Penobscot River could benefit spawning salmon, since lampreys clear silt during their nesting process, which could create streambed spawning areas suitable for salmon.
