Workshop: Fish Identification
From Renae Siler
Michigan’s inland lakes are home to dozens of fish species, from familiar game fishes to nongame fishes that most people rarely encounter. During this interactive workshop, you will learn about key characteristics that make fish identification easier and discuss the lake habitats where different species are most likely to be found. We will take advantage of existing online resources, and provide opportunities for practice. You will finish with a stronger familiarity of the diversity of Michigan’s inland lake fishes, and a list of identification guides and online resources to support your continued explorations. Presented by Dr. Brian Roth, Michigan State University. September 16, 2020, at the Michigan Inland Lakes Convention.
