In the News

A recent article from the University of Wisconsin Sea Grant Institute's quarterly publication, the Aquatic Sciences Chronicle, featured a story on wild rice harvesting by Anthony Kern, a Sea Grant-funded researcher. Kern is examining the genetic makeup of remaining populations to find out how to preserve the identity of wild rice while expanding its distribution along the Lake Superior and Lake Michigan coastlines.

This article is now a feature on the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association's research Web site. Please take a look at the happenings of NOAA, Wisconsin Sea Grant, and research on wild rice.
