Nohner receives award for outstanding graduate research
The $500 AIFRB Hubbs Research Assistance Award program promotes one of the Institute’s primary roles by supporting the professional development and performance of its members.
Nohner, a student of Bill Taylor, studies the effects of lake habitat on largemouth bass growth and survival in north temperate lakes. He completed his master’s degree at the University of Michigan, creating a GIS-based Muskellunge spawning habitat model.
He worked as a Knauss fellow for NOAA NMFS headquarters on habitat science and policy, including the 2010 National Fish Habitat Action Plan national estuary assessment.
