BIO 527 - Internship in Fisheries Biology with the Pennsylvania Fish Commission

(also listed as ENVSC 527 )
Credits: 2-4
Liaison: Professor Wissinger (BIO); Environmental Science Internship Coordinator (ENVSC)
The internship is designed to permit students to gain experience in the operation of a fish culture station and to participate in fishery management practices. In spring, the internship is in cooperation with the Linesville Hatchery near Pymatuning Lake, and in the fall with the Fairview Hatchery on Lake Erie. The student, faculty liaison, and Hatchery internship coordinator jointly agree on a project that is formalized by the student in a project proposal. Evaluation is based on a midterm progress report that includes a literature review, and on a final report that includes an analysis of the results of the study.

Prerequisite: BIO 220  and permission of instructor.
