MAISRC student Joey Lechelt wins AFS Award
This summer, MAISRC partnered with the Introduced Fish Section of the American Fisheries Society, to award funds of up to $500 to support student research on invasive fish, specifically developing strategies to advance understanding of the basic biology or ecology of invasive fish within the Upper Mississippi River Basin in order to more effectively control them.
It was announced this week that MAISRC graduate student Joey Lechelt was selected as the winner by a panel of external judges! Lechelt will travel to Portland, Oregon to present his findings on modeling evidence for physical removal as a viable option for invasive common carp at the American Fisheries Society annual meeting.
