    Monitoring and Minimizing Effects of Dredging on Lampreys

    This document summarzes knowns and uncertainties regarding the effects of Human-Caused Substrate Disturbances (HSCD) on larval and juvenile lampreys, and provides best management guidelines for known HSCD to protect lampreys to the best extent possible.
