UWM student freshwater scientist among those honored at research conference

The International Association for Great Lakes Research (IAGLR) recognized top student scientists for their contributions to IAGLR and Great Lakes science.

UW-Milwaukee’s Graceanne Tarsa was one of the honorees. Tarsa was recognized  with the Norman S. Baldwin Fishery Science Scholarship for research on “Round goby, Neogobius melanostomus, abundance and productivity in the rocky nearshore zone of Lake Michigan.”

The scholarship is awarded annually to a deserving graduate student conducting research pertaining to Great Lakes fisheries. It is sponsored by the Great Lakes Fishery Commission, IAGLR’s oldest sustaining member, and honors the first executive secretary of the Great Lakes Fishery Commission.

The awards were announced May 19 at the association’s 64th annual Conference on Great Lakes Research, held online.
