    Spiny Waterflea and other Lake Champlain Aquatic Invasive Species

    LCBP’s Love the Lake Speaker Series Thursday, February 26, 2015:

    Long-term Patterns and Impacts of Invasive Species on Lake Champlain’s Ecosystem

    Dr. Tim Mihuc, Director, SUNY Lake Champlain Research Institute, will speak on Thursday, February 26th at the LCBP offices in Grand Isle, Vermont, discussing last summer’s invasion of the Spiny Waterflea and the potential impacts of this and other aquatic invasive species on the ecosystem. Mihuc conducts the New York component of the Lake Champlain Basin Program’s Long Term Water Quality Monitoring Program in partnership with New York DEC. Mihuc is an aquatic ecologist who has also studied long-term patterns in Lake Champlain zooplankton and phytoplankton communities, the Lake’s food web, cyanobacteria, and benthic macro invertebrates. Anglers and non-anglers alike will appreciate the content of Mihuc’s presentation and the connections that he may draw to lake temperature and other factors impacting invasive species.

    This FREE public program is the 2nd of five LCBP Love the Lake presentations this winter. The program begins Thursday, February 26, 2015 at 6:30 p.m. in the Lake Champlain Basin Program Office and Vermont Fish and Wildlife Building, 54 West Shore Road, Grand Isle, Vermont, located just north of the Grand Isle ferry entrance. Homemade desserts and hot beverages will be served. For further information, contact the Lake Champlain Basin Program at the LCBP at (802) 372-3213.
