Abstract

Wherever they occur, the coregonids, like the salmonids, are important food fishes; but probably nowhere do they attain so much importance in the fisheries as in the region of the Great Lakes. This investigation has as its object the determination of the forms of coregonid fishes that occur in these lakes and the collection of data on their natural history. In addition to its economic significance, the problem is one of scientific interest. It concerns not merely the ecology of the Great Lakes species but it involves also the ultimate consideration of their origin and evolution and of their relationships with one another and with the coregonids of Asia and Europe, as well as with those of other parts of America.
