Andrew Bade gave a talk to the Columbus Sea Nags Scuba Diving Club on Sept. 7 at Planks' Cafe and Pizzeria. He presented on the use of acoustic telemetry to understand walleye movement in the Great Lakes. Information about Columbus Sea Nags can be found on their website (http://seanags.com/) and Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/Columbus-Sea-Nags-SCUBA-Divers--289276535926/).
Stu Ludsin participated in a workshop at the Cornell Biological Field Station. The workshop sought to help identify how changes in ecosystem productivity will influence Great Lakes food webs, as well as identify the implications for fisheries management.
1. Stu presented a talk entitled "Does variation in larval growth rate affect the recruitment of freshwater fishes? A case study with Lake Erie Yellow Perch" at the Larval Fish Conference in August, TX on July 13.
AEL faculty Stu Ludsin and his colleagues published an article entitled "Climate change as a long-term stressor for the fisheries of the Laurentian Great Lakes of North America" in the journal Reviews in Fish Biology and Fisheries. The full article can be found here.
Stuart Ludsin and Noel Aloysius traveled to the American Geophysical Union Annual Meeting in San Francisco, CA during December 12-16.
Noel and Stuart served as the Primary Convener and Co-Chair, respectively, of a symposium entitled, “New Frontiers in Water Resources: Achieving Water Resource Security in Times of Climate Change, Urbanization, and Agricultural Expansion”.
Noel also gave a contributed talk on his past PhD research entitled, “Hydroclimatic Change in the Congo River Basin: Past, Present and Future”, and co-authored an invited talk entitled “Reducing Lake Erie’s Harmful Algal Blooms: Projection and Adoption of Management Plans”.
OSU released a news article about their research, to coincide with the AGU meeting. It is entitled “Public willing to pay to reduce toxic algae – but maybe not enough” and can be found at https://news.osu.edu/news/2016/12/12/public-willing-to-pay-to-reduce-toxic-algae-but-maybe-not-enough/
