The Silver Chub (Macrhybopsis storeriana Kirtland, 1845), a once common Lake Erie species, is now rare.
Silver Chub was historically a substantial component of the Lake Erie aquatic community and may play a larger role if its population recovers.
Electrofishing-collected samples of Silver Chub within 43 sampling sites selected to represent nearshore habitats in shallow coastal waters of Ohio (June-October 1982-2002) (41[degrees]23'48"N-41[degrees]41'24"N, 82[degrees]32'55"W-83[degrees]28'33"W) were provided by the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) (Ohio Environmental Protection Agency, 2003; Thoma, 1999); these collections generally occurred in <5 m of water.
The EPA and DNR data sets represented the spectrum of habitats in western Lake Erie and observed Silver Chub abundances ranged from zero to >100/ha sampled.
5%); the prevalence of Silver Chub in the EPA data set was 11.
Silver Chub was predicted to be absent from patches mixed among the marginal habitats of shallow nearshore areas.
Signatures of relative habitat conditions reflect the prediction map and indicate that optimal Silver Chub habitat occurs in relatively deep water (>5 m), far from coastal wetlands and major rivers, where SAV is largely absent and water temperature variability is relatively low (Fig.

Board 01 A STUDY OF THE DIET AND GROWTH RATE OF SILVER CHUB, MACRHYBOPSIS STORERIANA, IN THE WESTERN BASIN OF LAKE ERIE.
However, the abundance of Silver Chub in the western basin of Lake Erie has recently increased.
Thirteen of the 97 fish species collected from Tippecanoe County during 1994 (Table 2) were new records for the County and included the spotted gar (Lepisosteus oculatus), threadfin shad (Dorosoma petenense), central mudminnow (Umbra limi), streamline chub (Erimystax dissimilis), silver chub (Macrhybopsis storeriana), channel shiner (Notropis wickliffi), southern redbelly dace (Phoxinus erythrogaster), mountain madtom (Noturus eleutherus), hybrid striped bass (Morone chrysops x M.
The silver chub was only collected from Wabash River sites and at the mouth of the Tippecanoe River.
