Fish Tales Program Delves Into the Secret Life of Fish

The 2022 Fish Tales Lecture Series is bringing the science of the Great Lakes Fisheries to Door County and beyond. Fish Tales is an educational program of Crossroads at Big Creek.

This year’s series is exploring the latest invasive carp barrier planned for the Brandon Road Lock on the Illinois River, how environmental DNA (eDNA) is deployed to detect the potential establishment of invasive carp in Lake Michigan, the development and accomplishments of the Great Lakes Acoustic Telemetry and Observation System (GLATOS) and the ecology and importance of suckers in the Great Lakes.

The next presentation takes place Jan. 31. Dr. Chuck Krueger, from Michigan State University, and Director Emeritus of the Great Lakes Acoustic Telemetry Observation System (GLATOS), will present “Great Lakes Acoustic Telemetry Observation System: Prying Into the Secret Lives of Fishes.” He will describe how the science of acoustic telemetry has greatly enhanced our understanding and ability to manage Great Lakes fisheries. 

All presentations will be held in-person at 7 pm in the lecture hall at Crossroads, 2401 Michigan Street, Sturgeon Bay. Zoom and Facebook Live links will be available and offered in partnership with the Door County Library.
