Dr. Peter Sorensen will enlighten you on the fascinating research he is leading and the creative solutions his team has developed to control invasive carp. Also, learn about the unique collaboration underway at the new Minnesota Aquatic Invasive Species Research Center (MAISRC) where the University of Minnesota, the MN Dept. of Natural Resources and others strive to find biologically and economically sound ways to address the increasing number of aquatic invasive species threatening Minnesota’s waters. Area residents, community and civic leaders are encouraged to attend. Dr. Peter Sorensen is the Director of the MAISRC and a professor in the University of Minnesota Department of Fisheries, Wildlife, and Conservation Biology. His boyhood intrigue at the diversity of fish species caught by commercial fishermen began his path to a Ph.D. in Biological Oceanography and a love for research. He helped identify some of the first sex pheromones in fish and now works with students on projects to address fish behavior, physiology, and chemoreception.
