Matthew Bootsma


Upon graduating from UW-Milwaukee in 2016 with a B.S. in Biology, I worked with the US Geological Survey at the Lake Superior Biological Station where I was formally introduced to the process of fisheries management on the Great Lakes. I am excited to join the co-op research unit at UWSP, where I will be studying genetic variation within walleye from northern WI and MN waters in an attempt to improve stocking practices.
