Floating Islands: Surrogate Fish Habitat in the Milwaukee River Estuary

Jan. 27, 7pm at Lac Lawrann Conservancy

An estimated 80% of native Great Lakes fish rely on wetlands for part of their lifecycle. As a blend of synthetic and natural floating media that bio-mimics wetlands, Floating Islands provide protected shelter and food sources for fish. Mike Marek of Marek Landscaping, LLC will discuss the results of Floating Islands at four sites in the Milwaukee River estuary.
