SOLitude Welcomes Three New Fisheries Biologists
January 15th, 2013
SOLitude Lake Management is pleased to welcome Aaron Cushing, Jeremy Haley and Marc Harris as Fisheries Biologists to our staff. Aaron, Jeremy and Marc will be responsible for assisting our clients with the management of their lakes, ponds, and other water resources. Their extensive backgrounds in fisheries management will also make them an asset to our clients when assisting our senior Fisheries Biologists in expanding the fisheries program.
Aaron joins SOLitude Lake Management after spending four years working with Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and Pacific States Marine Fisheries Commission. He earned his M.S. in Biology as a part of the Arkansas Fish and Wildlife Cooperative Unit at the University of Arkansas. There, his thesis and research focused on the impact of catch-and-release on the movement and survival of rainbow trout in Arkansas tailwaters. He also holds a B.S. from The State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry at Syracuse in Environmental and Forest Biology focusing in Fisheries and Aquatic Science.
Jeremy has over 7 years of water quality, fisheries and wildlife experience and holds a B.S. in Fisheries and Wildlife Sciences from the University of Missouri-Columbia. His professional field experience includes management of lakes and ponds for nuisance and invasive aquatic vegetation and pond algae, managing quality fisheries, and servicing fountains and aeration systems. He has also worked for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service monitoring spawning grounds and outmigration and the U.S. Geological Survey surveying silver carp and bighead carp.
Marc holds a B.S. in Fisheries Management with a minor in Biology from the University of Wisconsin – Stevens Point. He, too, has professional experience in managing lakes and ponds for nuisance and invasive aquatic vegetation and algae, and servicing floating fountains and aeration systems. As an avid angler, he competed on the collegiate level at UWSP.
“Aaron, Jeremy and Marc are excellent additions to our lake and pond management team,” said owner and president, Kevin Tucker. “As a part of an Integrated Pest Management program, their education and experience in lake and pond management, as well as fisheries and wildlife sciences, will help us serve an increasingly more important role in the health of our aquatic ecosystems and therefore our clients. We are pleased to have all three of them on our team.”
