Issues & Ale: Fish & the Changing Great Lakes
Tues, Oct. 1, 7:00-8:30pm
Mark Ridley's Comedy Castle
310 South Troy St, Royal Oak, MI 48067
The Great Lakes are changing. Warming air and water, shorter winters with less snow and ice and more extreme weather are impacting the lakes and the fish that live there. This could make it harder for native cold water fish to survive, and give invasive species an edge. In addition, harmful algal blooms are creating dead zones that are bad news for fish, and impact recreational users as well.
Stop by, have a drink, and join in the discussion. Free Admission!
Panelists will include:
Marc Smith - Senior Policy Manager, National Wildlife Federation
Ed Rutherford - Research Fishery Biologist, NOAA Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory
Dave Spangler - Lake Erie charter boat captain / President - Lake Erie Waterkeeper
