Jean V Adams

I provide statistical expertise to research scientists at the US Geological Survey Great Lakes Science Center and to the bi-national Great Lakes Fishery Commission

I am also PhD candidate with the Quantitive Fisheries Center at Michigan State University, seeking to understand what observed sea lamprey marking rates on surviving lake trout in the Great Lakes tell us about those that perished.
