UMD Student Wins Best Student Paper Award

Jami Sloan

Jami Sloan works in a field study on Keller Lake involving the use of sound as an attractant.

UMD integrated biosciences graduate student, Jami Sloan, won the annual American Fisheries Society (AFS) -Minnesota Chapter's 2010 award for Best Student Paper. Her paper, "Acoustical conditioning of the common carp," discusses her research involving the use of classical conditioning, to a sound stimulus, in order to attract a population of free swimming carp (Cyprinus carpio) into a designated area for subsequent removal.

Sloan received her bachelors degree in Marine Biology from Hawaii Pacific University. She is a graduate student of Al Mensinger, Associate Professor of Biology at UMD.

The Minnesota Chapter of the American Fisheries Society is one of 54 chapters in North America. It was formed in 1967 to provide a forum for fisheries workers in Minnesota to advance scientific management of the state's aquatic resources, and to support the goals of AFS at a local level.

Minnesota Sea Grant regularly helps fund the annual student awards given by the Minnesota Chapter.
