How many fish do the great lakes hold?



  1. 0 Votes

    There are over 150 species of fish in the Great Lakes, according to one count.  A fairly comprehensive list of species can be found at the link below.

    It appears that exact numbers might be difficult to locate.  According to information from the second link below (page 16 of the PDF): 

    “Since 2000, an average of 2.2 million Chinook salmon has been stocked into Lake Ontario. Angler crates show that the abundance of Chinook may have increased in the last 3 years. It is a fair assumpthat when coupled with wild reproduction estimates (at least 25%, Ian Craine, University of Toronto, unpublished data), the abundance of Chinook has increased. “
