Welcome to AEFL

The Aquatic Ecology and Fisheries Lab at the University of Wisconsin – Green Bay is ideally situated on the world’s largest freshwater estuary.  Our research focuses on a wide variety of topics including sportfish age, growth, and reproduction, bowfin and gar habitat utilization, assessments of small tributary fish communities, larval drift of whitefish and sturgeon, and general habitat assessments.

We have a wide variety of resources available and strive to be at the forefront of Great Lakes fisheries and aquatic research.  Our graduate and undergraduate students have gone on to work for federal and state agencies including USFWS, WIDNR, as well as private firms and graduate school.
