The Fishbusters!!!

Environmental Effects on Fish Populations in Miami University Creeks

R. Hays Cummins, Western Program, Miami University


I wanted to show you what one NS research team is up to in Natural Systems. Their nickname is "The Fishbusters." Here is a collection of pictures, quicktime slide shows and quicktime movies of these students at work. They are only one research team of about 30 or so groups. These student generated research projects ( take a look at some more examples of student projects) are the focal point of our course "Participatory Research in Environmental Science" in the School of Interdisciplinary Studies.

Quicktime SLIDESHOWS:
  • The Fishbusters Find Many Fish along Collins Run, 10/13/01. It was their first experience using a Fish Shocker! We collected about 170 fish--there were only three fatalities. It was a great day!
  • The Fishbusters Brave the Elements! A Cold (39 degrees), Cloudy Day in late October. We had a blast! All fish were released unharmed.
    Quicktime Movies:
  • A "small" (I use this term lightly) six minute-long quicktime movie. It's really cool!
  • Same Screen Size as Above but, a QUICKTIME STREAMING Version. Fantastic!
  • The Highest Quality Version (Quicktime Streaming).
