FISHING PROJECT’S RESULTS TO BE REVIEWED
The results of a grant-funded fishing project at the Bluffton University Nature Preserve will be Tami Forbes’ topic for "The One That Got Away," a Bluffton colloquium on Friday, Sept. 21.
Free and open to the public, the presentation by the associate professor of recreation will begin at 4 p.m. in Stutzman Lecture Hall in Bluffton’s Centennial Hall.
Forbes, also chair of the university’s health, fitness and sport science department, received a Bluffton University Research Center grant for the "catch and release" fishing project at the nature preserve’s pond this summer. Participating anglers caught more than 1,300 fish as part of an effort to identify what species are in the pond and to determine how best to achieve a balance for recreational fishing, which has been proposed on a limited basis by a nature preserve task force.
