Financial support for the development of this web site was provided by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service through the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative. The Michigan Department of Natural Resources, the Great Lakes Fishery Trust, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Partnership for Ecosystem Research and Management (PERM) cooperative program between the Fishery Division of the Michigan Department of Natural Resources and Department of Fisheries and Wildlife at Michigan State University, and Michigan State University Ag-Bio Research contributed research funding that allowed collection of the data that were presented in the site. Mary Whitmore, Charles Wooley, Mark Holey, and Robert Elliott were instrumental in organizing ideas and for shepherding the process through to completion. Mary Whitmore, Janet Vail, Mark Stephens, Brandon Schroeder, Louise Mead, Thomas Occhipinti, and Elizabeth LaPorte provided valuable input into web design and content. Special thanks to Brandon Schroeder for advice and leadership in developing the teacher workshops and for initiating contacts with teachers. Tracy D’Augustino provided curricula, facilitated discussions during workshops and reviewed curricula content. Steve Nimcheski, Brian Matchett, Scott Steensma, and Daniel Moffatt participated in numerous discussions about teacher curricula needs and format. The site would not have been possible without the hard work and dedication of John Bauman from the Department of Fisheries and Wildlife at Michigan State University and JoAnn Render from Michigan State University Learning Design and Technology.
