Man versus sea lamprey : can we win it? / M.E. Fox.: En13-5/90-21E-PDF

"Few anglers in the Great Lakes region can be unaware of the devastation of game fish in the Great Lakes by the sea lamprey, which reached its worst in the 1950s and 60s, and the subsequent recovery to today's fine fisheries, achieved by a vigorous program of restocking and sea lamprey control. What is less widely known is the severe problems faced by the Great Lakes Fishery Commission in even maintaining the hard-won gains in the face of severe underfunding and increasing costs"--page [1].
