Annual American Fishery Society meeting presentations

Many GLSC scientists participated in the August 2023 American Fisheries Society (AFS) annual meeting August 20-24, 2023, in Grand Rapids, Michigan. GLSC led at least two symposia on “Great Lakes connecting waters” and the “biology and management of lampreys in a rapidly changing landscape.” GLSC scientists coauthored or delivered more than 25 oral presentations, listed below.  

In addition, GLSC’s Dr. Robin L. DeBruyne (Ann Arbor, Michigan) was presented with the 2023 AFS Habitat Section Rising Star Award during the meeting. She was recognized for her leadership and technical support provided to several fish habitat restoration projects in the Great Lakes basin, her high level of scholarly productivity (more than 35 peer reviewed publications), professional service, and mentorship of graduate students and young professionals. The Rising Star Award recognizes the outstanding early-career contributions of students and early professionals in the field of fish habitat conservation.
