Biology seminar set for NMU

MARQUETTE – The next biology seminar at Northern Michigan University presented by Casey Hares will be at 10 a.m. Wednesday in Mead Auditorium in the West Science Building.

The presentation will examine the 1992-2012 diet of the burbot, a fish found in many Midwest lakes.

A cross between a catfish and eel, the burbot has a serpentine-like body that glides through the water. It survives on an eclectic diet of different types of invertebrates, fish, insects and small amphibians.

Studying the burbot has been made more challenging because its populations are being threatened or eliminated. For more information, call 227-2310.
