Lake Erie currently supports the largest commercial fishery in the Great Lakes. Walleye and yellow perch are the most harvested species, and the bulk of the Lake Erie catch is from Canadian waters.

Lake Ontario has the smallest commercial fishery. Harvested species include yellow perch, lake whitefish, bullhead, and Amercian eel.

Lakes Huron, Michigan, and Superior each maintain commercial fisheries for lake whitefish, lake trout, and chub.

Lake Superior: lake herring, smeltLake Huron: channel catfish, carp, Pacific salmon, yellow perch, and walleye,

Lake Michigan: smelt, yellow perch.

I can't see Lake Ontario having a significant salmonoid fishery due to public health concerns regarding their consumption. Some of the smaller species are OK because they aren't as long lived, or sit in a spot in the food-chain that makes them less prone to building up high levels of pollutants.That said, the lake is much cleaner now than it was 20 years ago.

I've seen a trawler out there, I'm sure it was NOT a commercial fishing boat
