Alum Success

"I chose to transfer to Lake Superior State University because of the personal attention I would receive. I did not want to attend a large university where I would be a number lost in the masses. The well-rounded curriculum allowed me to obtain my position at John Deere. Having a good balance of theory and hands-on knowledge is critical for my position and Lake State gave me a good foundation in these skills."

Of the wide range of species found in salmon stomachs he sampled, the most prevalent prey item, rainbow smelt, is associated with a vitamin B deficiency. This deficiency leads to early mortality in young Atlantic salmon.
