Public Talk Describes Aliens in Lake Superior

May 27, 2004

The public is invited to the next free talk in the Liquid Science speaker series, hosted by the University of Minnesota Sea Grant Program and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Mid-Continent Ecology Division. The talk will take place on June 8 at 7 p.m. at the EPA Gitchee Gumee Conference Center (6201 Congdon Blvd. - note, this is a change of venue).

From alewife to zebra mussels, non-native species have a long history of accidental and intentional introductions and impacts on the fishery in Lake Superior. During an hour-long seminar, Doug Jensen of the University of Minnesota Sea Grant Program will present, “Aliens A to Z: A History of Non-Native Species Introductions in Lake Superior.” Join this lively review of non-native species in Lake Superior; learn what these species look like and how to stop the alien invasion.

A reception will follow the talk. For more information, visit Liquid Science online or contact Minnesota Sea Grant by e-mail or call 218-726-8106.

This series was made possible in part by a grant from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources-Waters and Minnesota’s Lake Superior Coastal Program through the Coastal Zone Management Act, which is administered through the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Office of Ocean and Coastal Resource Management.
