Whitefish on junk food by Earthwatch Radio

Earthwatch Radio writes: A common fish in the Great Lakes is struggling with an eating disorder.

Steve Pothoven says whitefish seem to be getting by but they are not getting fat. Pothoven is a biologist with the Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory, and he worked on a major study of whitefish and their diets. The study focused on fish in Lake Michigan and Lake Huron. Pothoven says they normally eat small native crustaceans called diporeia. But he says diporeia have disappeared and now the whitefish are eating a lot of junk food.
