I was a member of Fisheries Division\'s \"Watershed Approach to Re-engineering Team\". Our group was charged with developing a game plan by which Fisheries Division could adopt a watershed approach to fisheries management.In 1998-1999, I chaired a committee charged with reviewing and updating the fishing regulations for trout and salmon in inland waters of Michigan. This committee generated a classification system for regulations that took effect in spring 2000.I continue to be a member of the Research Inventory and Planning committee. This committee is working to standardize Fisheries Division\'s assessment activities in inland lakes and streams.Fisheries management; aquatic communities and food web dynamics; fish recruitment.
