Located on the shore of Lake Superior, Northern Michigan University is in an excellent place to learn about both applied and basic aquatic biology. We have a variety of courses dealing with aquatic environments, aquatic biology including Great Lakes ecology, limnology, aquatic insects, fisheries management and ichthyology. We even offer a summer course in marine biology. Research interests are diverse and include fish migration, aquatic insect ecology, loon population genetics, and freshwater crab systematics.
Students interested in this area might consider any of the Biology Department majors, especially biology, ecology, zoology and botany.
