ART OF THE DRAW – Lake Superior State University fisheries and wildlife management student Tyler Jackson, left, draws blood on April 6 from an Atlantic salmon fingerling, one of several thousand being raised at LSSU's Aquatic Research Laboratory in Sault Ste. Marie, Mich. Guiding Jackson is fish health specialist and LSSU biology professor Jun Li, along with fisheries student James Miller. Students master blood-drawing techniques to monitor the health of LSSU's salmon stock. Faculty and students are also gearing up for summer fish studies to be conducted throughout the St. Mary's river and upper Great Lakes basins. Jackson, a sophomore from Clyde, Mich., has landed a competitive National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) scholarship and internship to continue his undergraduate research. Miller is a junior from Woodhaven, Mich. (Photo by John Shibley)
