"I received my Bachelor of Science in Fisheries and Wildlife Management with a concentration on Fisheries Management at Lakes Superior State University. While at LSSU I worked at the Center for Freshwater Research and Education fish hatchery raising Atlantic salmon. I was also vice president of the LSSU Aquaculture club and oversaw and managed the Aquaponic Learning Laboratory's two aquaponic systems. I am most interested in learning more about the operations of large-scale RAS systems and walleye rearing."
As Aquaculture Technician, Robby is assisting with the facility's research and demonstration projects, rearing both cool and cold water species at various life stages including walleye, Atlantic salmon, lake trout and Arctic char. This also includes gaining experience in various culture systems; ponds, raceways, recirculating, incubation and larval systems.
