GLIN==> Seiche Newsletter



Minnesota Sea Grant's "Seiche" online newsletter is now available:
http://www.seagrant.umn.edu/seiche/index.html


Articles include:

- Hooked on Coasters. People around Lake Superior are getting hooked on
remembering a unique fish - the coaster brook trout.  Sea Grant and
other organizations are working to restore brook trout populations in
the big lake.

- Cormorant Conundrum. Sea Grant-funded researchers surveyed fish
farmers in Minnesota to correlate bird-related fish losses with the
distribution and abundance of double-crested cormorants, American white
pelicans, and great blue herons. They found that cormorants seem to
cause the most severe problems for fish farmers.

- New Avenues for Education at the Aquarium. Sarah Donahue, one of our
graduate student interns, is responsible for a new program that pairs
undergraduate education students with specialists at the Great Lakes
Aquarium to meet a volunteer teaching requirement and enhance education
efforts directed towards Lake Superior.

- Liquid Science Speaker Series Starts. Soak up the latest information
concerning the Great Lakes and Minnesota's waters by attending our new
monthly series of talks in Duluth and Grand Marais.

..plus information on other staff activities and new products/services.
