Dr. Solomon R. David is a Research Scientist at the U.S. Geological Survey Great Lakes Science Center in partnership with the Daniel P. Haerther Center for Conservation & Research at John G. Shedd Aquarium and the University of Wisconsin-Madison Center for Limnology. His current research involves conservation and restoration ecology of Great Lakes native fishes, focusing on coregonids (e.g. Lake Herring Coregonus artedi). Previous research at Shedd Aquarium and University of Wisconsin-Madison involved conservation of Great Lakes migratory fishes (e.g. Lake Whitefish C. clupeaformis, Northern Pike Esox lucius) and their function in connecting and influencing fluvial (rivers, streams) and lacustrine (lake) ecosystems.
His graduate research at the University of Michigan School of Natural Resources & Environment involved conservation ecology of peripheral populations of species (Spotted Gar Lepisosteus oculatus) and also sustainable aquaculture of air-breathing fishes (e.g. Cuban Gar Atractosteus tristoechus). He’s also worked with various agencies (USGS, NOAA, DNR) on other Great Lakes species including Chinook Salmon Oncorhynchus tshawytscha, Steelhead O. mykiss, Lake Trout Salvelinus namaycush, and Bloater Coregonus hoyi.
