US Long-Term Ecological Research Network
Development, evaluation, and transfer of new technology
Abstract
A selling point of the Lake Mendota biomanipulation project was the evaluation of two technologies developed by the Center for Limnology at the University of Wisconsin (UWCFL)—bioenergetics modeling and hydroacoustic assesment of fish populations—and the subsequent transfer of the technologies to the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR). An important result of the Lake Mendota project has been a large increase in contact and cooperation between the university and WDNR accomplished partly through monthly discussion group meetings followed by important after-hours informal discussions at the Student Union Terrace on the shores of Lake Mendota. The increased contact between UWCFL and WDNR facilitated technology transfer and we are increasingly dealing with collective evaluation and development rather than with a transfer of technology from the university to fisheries management.
