Dan Isermann
Unit Leader Dan Isermann

I serve as Unit Leader of the Wisconsin Cooperative Fishery Research Unit. I earned my degrees from Southern Illinois University (BS), Tennessee Tech University (MS), and South Dakota State University (PhD). Before my employment with USGS, I was an assistant professor of fisheries at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point and worked as a fisheries biologist and research scientist with the Ohio Division of Wildlife and the Minnesota DNR.
