Mood for Atlantics

Jordan Browne, co-host of Michigan Out Of Doors (MOOD) TV, was briefed by Lake Superior State University’s Aquatic Research Laboratory manager Roger Greil (right) and Michigan Department of Natural Resources fish production program manager Ed Eisch (left) during a tour of the ARL on Jan. 29th. The LSSU-run lab has worked with the DNR since 1984 to introduce and maintain Atlantic salmon, considered one of the world’s premier sport fish, into the St. Mary’s river system and upper Great Lakes.In the foreground are thousands of Atlantic salmon yearlings slated for release this summer.

Greil also briefed Browne on lab research conducted by LSSU students, as well as plans to expand the ARL into a Center for Freshwater Research and Education. Browne is preparing his story for airing in February or early March. MOOD-TV runs weekly on Public Televisions stations throughout Michigan.
