2012 In Review – Electrofishing, Pike-Hunting and The Return of Phantom Midge

2012-06-22 13.23.102012 was a great year to be a limnologist. Center for Limnology researchers got out in the field to conduct interesting experiments in beautiful settings, papers published by both faculty and students received all sorts of media attention, and, perhaps most important, the CFL band, Phantom Midge, once again rocked the Christmas party.
As we sign off for 2012, we’ll leave you with some of our favorite videos (including a clip of Phantom Midge’s performance) of 2012 – Happy Holidays and see you in 2013, when we’ll do it all again!
