Global Under-reporting of Freshwater Fisheries:
Etienne Fluet-Chouinard's first thesis chapter was published in PNAS in summer 2018! Etienne worked with the UN FAO to draw upon household consumption surveys from 42 countries, and concluded that one in three fish has gone unreported by the conventional global catch statistics!
INTO THE RIFT
This interactive website highlights our research in Lake Tanganyika in the heart of Africa’s Rift Valley. Witness one of the world’s biological wonders and our team that's unraveling its mysteries.
Have a look at the new paper out in Fisheries by McIntyre Lab post-doc Allison Moody and the rest of Great Lakes connectivity team: Pet Project or Best Project? Online Decision Support Tools for Prioritizing Barrier Removals in the Great Lakes and Beyond
Check out Fishwerks: our new decision support tool
to optimally target candidate Great Lakes Basin barriers in order to maximize the return on investment from the improvement projects which are funded each year.
What Can Snails Tell Us About Water Quality? Pete answers that question and talks about field work on Lake Tanganyika via The Nature Conservancy's Cool Green Science blog.
Check out the new blog post by McIntyre Lab PhD student Aaron Koning on his field work in Thailand: Are we saving forests at the expense of rivers?
Congratulations to McIntyre Lab post-doc Austin Milt whose dissertation research recently appeared in a new major text for conservation planning. Conservation Planning: Informed Decisions for a Healthier Planet by Craig R. Groves and Edward T. Game is a new resource for practitioners, students, or researchers of conservation, natural resource management, or landscape planning and architecture. It includes methods, tools, approaches and case studies in nature conservation.
The McIntyre Lab will migrate to Shedd Aquarium for the second annual World Fish Migration Day! Join us in Chicago on May 21 to learn more about migratory fishes, the need for healthy rivers, and opportunities to protect them! Visitors can undertake a scavenger hunt of sorts as they fill in their “Migratory Fish Passport.” See migratory species up close and on display. Talk with fisheries researchers about how they monitor fish populations and what they’re learning. And, of course, get a photo of their heads in our amazing “fish face cut-outs.”
New CFL blog post featuring the research of M.S. student John Rodstrom: Fish Fry Day: Mapping the Movements of Migrating Fish
Catherine Wagner, a UW assistant professor in the Department of Botany and the UW Biodiversity Institute, is studying interactions between the biodiversity of East Africa’s Lake Tanganyika and the human communities that live around the lake. The work is conducted with the support of The Nature Conservancy and with collaborator Peter McIntyre, an assistant professor in the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Center for Limnology.
New post on The Fisheries Blog by former lab post-doc Stephanie Januchowski-Hartley highlighting migratory fish barrier research in the Great Lakes Basin: Why didn't the fish cross under the road?
NEW paper by McIntyre Lab former grad student Evan Childress out in Ecology of Freshwater Fish, "Spawning success and early life history of longnose suckers in Great Lakes tributaries"
Called “Fish On the Run,” the site will chronicle the fieldwork, scientific studies and computer modeling going on in Peter McIntyre’s research group here at the Center for Limnology. While much of the focus will be on the migratory fishes of the Great Lakes, folks in McIntyre’s group also explore fish as far afield as Tanzania and Thailand.
A sneak peek of an upcoming H7 project that will take viewers on a journey to the shores of Lake Tanganyika.
