Student Research...

Suttons Bay, Michigan

Nick conducted a fish population survey in the rapids of the St. Mary's river, just east of the International Bridge that connects the US and Canada. He determined fish timing and their use of the rapids by collecting samples throughout the summer and fall of 2009, using a screw trap on loan from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Steimel found that many different species are not only in the rapids, but spawn there as well. His research helps determine the diversity of fish as well when their use of spawning habitat is at its highest in that section of the river.
