Dan Isermann to Present Fish Tales Lecture

Dan Isermann will present the next Fish Tales lecture – “Where Fish Wander in Green Bay: Tracking the Movements of Walleye and Whitefish” – at Crossroads at Big Creek in Sturgeon Bay on March 19, 7 pm, in the Collins Learning Center. He will discuss how acoustic-telemetry technology enables him to track where fish spawn and move from southern Green Bay to Bay de Noc and even Lake Michigan. 

Isermann serves as unit leader of the Wisconsin Cooperative Fishery Research Unit and was a UW-Stevens Point assistant professor of fisheries and a fisheries biologist and research scientist with the Ohio Division of Wildlife and the Minnesota DNR.As part of the Great Lakes Acoustic Telemetry Observation System, Isermann and other Great Lakes scientists have implanted 339 walleye and 425 whitefish with transmitters and have been tracking their movements using a network of 192 receivers placed at the bottom of the lake.
