Lecture: Impact of Invasive Species on Lake Erie Fisheries – Feb. 21

Eugene C. Braig, Program Director of the Aquatic Ecosystems Extension at The Ohio State University, will present the lecture “Impact of Invasive Species on Lake Erie Fisheries,” at 7 p.m. on Feb. 21, 2013, in the Alumni Heritage Room of Teachout-Price.

The lecture, sponsored by the Center for Deciphering Life’s Languages and Lindsay-Crane Center for Writing and Literature, is part of the Science Reads program. Science Reads is a Northeast Ohio community reading program based on Paul Greenberg’s book Four Fish: The Future of the Last Wild Food.

“The Science Reads program is one way to bring the public back into discussions at a time when that is absolutely critical. (Science asks questions like:) What are we going to do with respect to climate change? How are we going to feed a world of 9 billion humans?” said Brad Goodner, director of the Center for Deciphering Life’s Languages. “These questions and many others impact all of us.”
