Congratulations to Sandra Nierzwicki-Bauer, Professor and Associate Director of the Darrin Fresh Water Institute who recently received a one year/$56,578 grant entitled Title: Human and ecosystem health risks of mercury and cyanotoxins in Lake Champlain. Her team will be analyzing five fish species (lake trout, walleye, yellow perch, white perch and smallmouth bass)  for mercury from the seven segments of the lake. She has collaborated with Dr. Greg Boyer at SUNY ESF to assess cyantoxin concentrations in fish (yellow perch, smallmouth bass and sheepshead) in 2 locations of the lake that regularly experience cyanobacterial blooms during summer months.
