Nicole’s research seeks to answer key uncertainties to successful reintroduction of Arctic Grayling to Michigan streams. The focus of her research is three part: predation of newly hatched Grayling fry by young Brook and Brown trout; competition between age-0 Grayling, Brook and Brown trout; and imprinting of Arctic Grayling to their “home” waters.
Nicole received her M.S. from Central Michigan University where her research focused on the use of unique otolith microchemistry of juvenile Steelhead in tributaries of Lake Michigan to trace back to stream of origin.
