Minnesota Aquatic Invasive Species Research Center (MAISRC)
MAISRC well-represented at American Fisheries Society meeting
Several MAISRC researchers presented their work at last month’s Minnesota Chapter of the American Fisheries Society annual meeting, which brought together fisheries professionals from throughout the state and featured presentations on everything from acoustic deterrence of carp to zebra mussel biomass. The Minnesota AFS meeting is a key opportunity for information exchange with Minnesota DNR fisheries personnel from around the state about the current research on invasives.
MAISRC researchers presented and discussed numerous research projects, and we are proud to announce that Peter Xiong, an undergraduate student with MAISRC, won the coveted "Best Poster" award! Peter presented, "Determining whether polyamines function as behavioral deterrents in a model filter-feeding invasive species, the bigheaded carp." Congratulations to Peter!
