How Are Your Aquarium Fish Doing?

Can a fish catch a cold? Researchers at MSU are teaming up with the Shedd Aquarium to determine how aquarium fauna get sick, what kinds of viruses they can become afflicted with, how to treat these illnesses and how to prevent them. We all want to keep our aquatic friends happy and healthy! For more information, check out the link below, or click here.

Cooler, wetter summer means reduced habitat quality for aquatic plants and fish

Lower average temperatures and increased rainfall compared to last summer have resulted in reduced water clarity in many local lakes. In addition to other factors, rains wash sediment into aquatic systems, clouding the water. This reduces the amount of sunlight available to aquatic plants and makes it more difficult for some fish to see while feeding. See the whole story from Indiana DNR.
