Recent Happenings - U of Manitoba Campus

Craig McDougall recently presented a poster titled “Course scale movement patterns of juveniles/subadult lake sturgeon in a small Winnipeg River reservoir” at the Canadian Conference for Fisheries Research held in Winnipeg, MB (7-9 Jan). Craig is now preparing for the 2010 field season.

Cam Barth and Cheryl Klassen had the opportunity of a lifetime to travel to Wuhan, China and participate in the 6th International Symposium on Sturgeon.

Both presented work from their PhD projects which were well received by an audience that consisted of the world’s top sturgeon scientists. Following four days of talks, participates had the chance to travel outside the city to visit the Three Gorges Dam and release Chinese sturgeon into the Yangtze River. It was also an opportunity for these prairie CRI students to meet fellow CRI’er, David Leslauriers, from UNBSJ (Kieffer Lab). Overall, it was an eye-opening experience not soon to be forgotten!
