Midwest Aquatic Invasive Species Coordinator Receives Award
KATIE STEIGER-MEISTER, REGIONAL OFFICE-EXTERNAL AFFAIRS
For more than 35 years Hoff has dedicated his professional career to fisheries management, aquatic research and aquatic ecology in the Great Lakes basin. He has served as the Midwest Region’s Aquatic Invasive Species Program Coordinator since 2002. In that time he has delivered dozens of professional presentations, published numerous reports and publications, as well as played a pivotal role in the development and advancement of tools that support non-native species risk assessments. Hoff’s risk assessment work will help stop numerous aquatic invaders from ever reaching our country’s waters.
The Reduce Risks from Invasive Species Coalition annually recognizes legislators, state and local government agencies, nonprofits, and businesses for their achievements in addressing invasive species issues across the country. The nonprofit’s mission is to educate Americans on the risks posed by invasive species to the economy, environment, and public health of the United States, and promote cost-effective strategies to reduce those risks.
Join us in congratulating Mike Hoff on his outstanding achievement!
