GLSC research activities at the Hammond Bay Biological Station (Millersburg, Michigan) was filmed by Voice of America News on June 2-3, 2019. Voice of America is the largest US international broadcaster, providing news and information in more than 40 languages to an estimated weekly audience of more than 275 million people. An upcoming news segment will feature the Great Lakes Fishery Commission’s invasive sea lamprey control program, including the role of GLSC research at Hammond Bay Biological Station. Dr. Nick Johnson (GLSC, Millersburg, Michigan) was interviewed regarding his research involving the release of sterilized male sea lamprey into the Upper Cheboygan River system in northern Michigan, a project which aims to suppress reproduction of sea lamprey in a small, isolated population. Additionally, Scott Miehls (GLSC, Millersburg, Michigan) was interviewed about his work collecting fish images for development of a fish identification algorithm, with the goal of selective passage of native fishes around migratory barriers and removal of invasive fishes. Dr. Andrea Miehls (GLSC, Millersburg, Michigan) coordinated the videography in cooperation with the Great Lakes Fishery Commission. The news segment will be broadcast on television and over the internet via the Voice of America website and social media.
