Starting in 2006, the bloody-red mysis (Hemimysis anomala) was discovered as a new invasive species in the Great Lakes, specifically found in the Muskegon channel which flows into Lake Michigan. As predicted at the time of introduction, the bloody-red mysis has expanded its range in Lake Michigan as we have recently documented them in Grand Traverse Bay. Using a gear designed to sample lake trout and lake whitefish eggs during spawning, we found variable densities of bloody-red mysis within interstitial spaces of substrate particles across three nearshore reefs at Elk Rapids, Lake Michigan.
