Lallaman, students survey fish communities

Biology summer intern Sarah Fanning holds a large northern pike sampled from Sand Lake, Minn.

Over the summer, Josh Lallaman, Ph.D., (Biology) was awarded two contracts to survey Minneapolis/greater metro area lakes.  Summer biology interns assisted with surveying the fish communities in Sand and Long Lakes (Washington County).

Additional biology student volunteers will be assisting with surveying common carp populations in Spring, Arctic, and Cedar Lakes (Scott County) in September. These contracts are a result of collaboration with Saint Mary’s biology alumnus Mike Majeski, who currently works for the environmental consulting firm Emmons & Olivier Resources, Inc.
