Students Honored for Fisheries Science

Graduate student Dalma Martinovic won best student paper at the annual meeting of the Midwest Chapter of the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC), which was held earlier this year in Rhinelander, WI. Martinovic was awarded $1,000 for travel to the national SETAC meeting, which will be held in Austin, TX, this November. The title of her paper was, "Waterborne Estrogens and Wastewater Effluent Suppress Competitive Behavior and Reproductive Success of Fathead Minnow Males."

Marinovic works on a Sea Grant-funded endocrine disrupter research project with Peter Sorensen, professor of fisheries, wildlife and conservation biology at the University of Minnesota. In addition to Sorensen, doctoral student Bill Hogarth was co-author on the paper.

Undergraduate student Dan Wilfond won the "Sea Grant Award for Fisheries Science," which was presented at the American Fisheries Society Minnesota Chapter meeting earlier this year in Chaska, MN. Wilfond was awarded $250 for his paper, "Seasonal Movements, Habitat Use, and Harvest Rates of Trophy Brown Trout in an Urban Minnesota Stream."

Wilfond worked with George Spangler, professor of fisheries, wildlife and conservation biology at the University of Minnesota. Jason Moeckel of the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources co-authored the paper.
