My students have worked on projects ranging from the sunfish and walleye culture, aquature effluents, plankton and benthic insect populaton dynamics in culture ponds, and water quality. Study sites have consisted of both private operations as well as hatcheries operation by the IDNR. My current project focus is developement of best management practices for Hybrid Striped-Bass and Bluegill culture using the recently constructed ponds owned by Iowa State University, ISU-ARF, as well as the IDNR, Mt. Ayr and Rathbun Fish Hatchery.
