Mapping, Enhancing & Creating Ecological Diversity
To improve habitats for our area fish populations, the School of Freshwater Sciences is partnering with other scientific organizations to revitalize the Milwaukee Harbor as an ecological support system for Lake Michigan and an economic engine for southeast Wisconsin. The team conducted many studies and assessments to help scientists develop strategies for future fish habitats. This will encourage fish population reproduction that supports other water and land initiatives and wildlife. To share the study findings with those who will use them, we created the Milwaukee Harbor Habitat Maps.
