WHITEFISH STORY – Lake Superior State University fisheries students Bill Bernier (left) and John Ransom skim the Pendills Creek steam bed for a census of what lives in its sediment. The foreground collection bottle holds grubs and various nymphs that support fish in the creek. LSSU has been working with Bay Mills Indian Community this summer on a comprehensive study of whitefish in Whitefish Bay and ecosystems that support the fish. WCMU Public Radio's "On the Map" series featured a report on Aug. 14 about the federally funded project. The archived story will be posted shortly. Bernier is from Sault Ste. Marie, Mich.; Ransom, from Traverse City, Mich. Both are seniors. (LSSU/John Shibley)
