GLIN==> Seminar/Meeting - Hemimysis, the newest G.L. aqatic invader



In late December NOAA announced the discovery near Muskegon, Michigan of a new invader, the Ponto-Caspian mysid shrimp Hemimysis anomala.  On Thursday, January 11, Steve Pothoven, from GLERL's Lake Michigan Field Station, will present a seminar on the Hemimysis discovery (10:30 a.m., main GLERL Conference Rm)  See:

and

After the seminar, starting at 1 p.m. GLERL will host an informal coordination meeting in our main conference room for anyone interested in joining us to  develop a coordinated survey approach to identify where else, if at all, the species has established within the basin, and also to discuss potential research topics and outline the elements of a rapid research response.

If you think you'll attend the afternoon meeting, or if you can't attend but would like more information, please let me know (david.reid@noaa.gov).

Thanks.
