Questions on Great Lakes Fisheries?  Call UW Sea Grant!

MADISON, Wis. (5/10/99) - People with questions or needs related to Great
Lakes fisheries can now call upon a new resource.  The University of
Wisconsin Sea Grant Institute announced today that Philip B. Moy has begun
work as the institute's new Fisheries Specialist.

Moy is based at UW-Manitowoc.  His first order of business is to determine
the concerns and needs of commercial, sport, and charter groups who fish on
Lake Michigan or Lake Superior.  He will then provide these groups,
industry, agency personnel, and the public with instruction, applied
research, practical demonstration, field-testing, and consultation on
fisheries problems, non-indigenous species, and other Great Lakes fisheries
issues. 

"Moy is a great people person," said Allen Miller, UW Sea Grant's Assistant
Director for Advisory Services.  "He'll put together programs that will
serve Wisconsin's diverse fishing interests.  If Sea Grant can provide some
assistance, people should let  him know."

Moy can be reached by phone at (920) 683-4697 or by email at pmoy@uwc.edu.  

Before starting with UW Sea Grant, Moy worked for seven years at the U.S.
Army Corps of Engineers in Chicago as a fisheries biologist.  With the
Corps, he assessed the impacts of proposed projects on aquatic populations
and their habitat in Illinois and Indiana, and he served as project manager
of the Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal Aquatic Nuisance Species Dispersal
Barrier demonstration project. He also worked on projects for flood
protection, dredging, Remedial Action Plans, and aquatic habitat
enhancement.

Moy earned a doctorate in Zoology from Southern Illinois University at
Carbondale in 1991.  He then worked as an Associate Research Biologist with
the Illinois Natural History Survey for three years.
