Abstract

Over the past 175 years, a number of coregonids — lake whitefish (Coregonus clupeaformis), lake herring (Coregonus artedi) and chub (two species flocks: Coregonus hoyi-kiyi-nigripinnis and Coregonus zenithicus-johannae-reighardi) — have been among the principal target species of America's Great Lakes commercial fishery. This essay historically examines the manner in which coregonids structured particular management priorities and debates among fisheries constituencies and fostered a management milieu that ranged from willing cooperation and optimism to strident division.
