AWRI presents at the Michigan Chapter of the American Fisheries Society
AWRI was well represented at the annual meeting of the Michigan Chapter of the American Fisheries Society, which was held recently in Bay City. The annual meeting provided a venue for scientists to discuss their research on fish in Michigan. Several students and staff working in Dr. Carl Ruetz’s laboratory presented research that focused on drowned river mouths lakes (a prominent feature on Lake Michigan’s eastern shoreline) as well as fish identification:
In addition to the presentations, many of the students and staff participated in a continuing education workshop focused on statistical aspects of sampling freshwater fish populations. Overall, the conference provided a valuable opportunity for AWRI’s students, faculty, and staff to share their research with Michigan’s scientific community, learn about cutting-edge research, and pursue professional development.
