The food web connects all of the living things in the lakes to one another. Step aboard to get up close with the fish and plankton that call the Great Lakes home and discover a new addition to the food web – microplastics. Then, set sail and steer the ship as we look for these tiny pieces of plastic with the Manta Trawl. Learn how microplastics interact with life in the Great Lakes and what we can do about them. All microplastics data collected goes to researchers at State University of New York, Fredonia. Participants are also invited to help raise the sails on our 77-foot schooner and will have plenty of time to enjoy the experience of sailing.
