, Alosa pseudoharengus.
Currently the salmon fishing in Lake Michigan is great because the alewife

Historically, the largest silvers (up to 30 pounds) came from southeast Alaska and British Columbia rivers, but since introductions of the species to the Great Lakes in the 1950s (to help control rampant alewife
populations) larger specimens have been taken there.
Juveniles of the freshwater white sucker (Catostomus commersoni) and clupcids (mostly the anadromous alewife
, Alosa pseudoharengus) were far more abundant in the upper half of the study reach (0.
Predatory coho and chinook salmon were stocked into Lake Huron in the 1960s to control explosive populations of two other exotic species, the alewife
and the rainbow smelt.
All lake trout lakes contain zooplankton, but many lakes lack intermediate trophic links: Mysis relicta (a freshwater shrimp), and the common and available prey fish of lake trout that we refer to as "pelagic forage fish" (smelt, cisco, whitefish, alewife
, sculpins, nine-spine stickleback, and troutperch).
The image of "Mother Gin" very closely resembles that of the despised alewife
