Until I became Department Chairperson, my position was supported by a partnership between the university and three Great Lakes fishery management agencies: the Michigan Department of Natural Resources, the Great Lakes Fishery Commission, and the Great Lakes Science Center of the USGS.  The partnership is called PERM, the Partnership for Ecosystem Research and Management. Since 1993 PERM has supported several faculty positions and research programs in Fisheries and Wildife, using funds contributed by the Great Lakes Fishery Commission and the Michigan Department of Natural Resources.

Much of my research focuses on science needs for the integrated program for the management of Great Lakes sea lamprey, and has been generously supported by the Great Lakes Fishery Commission. The research has also been supported in many ways by contributions from two other partnters, the Canadian (Fisheries and Oceans Canada) and U.S. (United States Fish and Wildlife Service) Agents for the sea lamprey control program.
