AUTHORS: Scott McNaught*, CMU; Kevin Pangle, CMU; and Tracy Galarowicz, CMU

ABSTRACT: Central Michigan University boasts a rich tradition in fisheries and aquatic ecology from the inception of the Department of Conservation and Agriculture (now the Department of Biology) to the development of the CMU Biological Station on Beaver Island, and the recent establishment of the Institute of Great Lakes Research. Collaborations between our researchers and federal, state, tribal, and non-government agencies have addressed questions about fish population dynamics, movement, recruitment, habitat use and genetic structure as well as questions about other components of the aquatic ecosystem. Graduates of our bachelor’s and master’s programs have also contributed to research and management of natural resources through careers in agencies and academia. We highlight the contributions that CMU has made to fisheries and aquatic research as well as the future direction of our programs.
