Andy B, Darron K, Andy C, Casey H
For the study of fish ecology and macroinvertebrate ecology in lakes, rivers and streams of Michigan's Upper Peninsula.

The Fish Ecology/Aquatic Ecology Research Group is part of the Department of Biological Sciences at Michigan Technological University.

Dr. Casey Huckins Casey Huckins manages the "Fish Ecology" Lab. Research in his lab addresses aquatic community ecology, riparian ecology and functional morphology of fishes.

Casey's current research projects focus on two broad areas:

1) Relationships among riparian fish and macroinvertebrate communities, stream habitat, watershed conditions and forest management; and

2) The ecology and restoration of native fishes such as coaster brook trout.

CoasterIndividual research projects and graduate students doing research in aquatic ecology have links highlighted on the Graduate Student Page.
