Focusing on northern pike at Crossroads this week

You can learn about one of the most important fish in Lake Michigan at an event in Sturgeon Bay this week. Continuing the Celebrate Water Door County Initiative, Crossroads at Big Creek will be hosting a lecture focusing on the predatory northern pike. Dr. Patrick Forsythe, Associate Professor of Biology at UW-Green Bay, will be presenting the lecture on Wednesday. Forsythe says the pike are an important species in the lake as top predators but also draw people's interest with their more unique habits.

 

 

Dr. Forsythe plans to cover a number of aspects of northern pike research, looking at how human actions like dam removals along Duck Creek have affected the populations as well as how climate change may affect the species. Forsythe added he hopes to make it interesting to both children and adults. The lecture beings at 7 PM.
