Did you know that fish can hear? It's something Dennis Higgs has known
for a long time. And he's using that knowledge to find a way to reduce the Round Goby population in the Great Lakes. The Round Goby is an invasive species
from Europe that found its way to our waters about 20 years ago.....likely through the ballast water in ships. And since that time, it's population has grown to number in the billions. Dennis Higgs has been trying to come up with a way to trap them. And he's come up with an interesting way to do it.....using fish sounds to attract the Round Goby.
Dennis Higgs is an Associate Professor of Biology at the University of Windsor.

When planning events to mark the 200th. anniversary of the War of 1812 the City of Windsor put out a call
to mural artists for submissions.
The murals were to represent the 200 years of friendship between the U.S. and Canada.
From all the submissions two projects were chosen.
One is from Justin Langlois and the other is from Lorraine Steele and Phil McLeod.
They will soon begin work on their murals
Justin couldn't make it in this afternoon - his work will be installed on the windmill at the corner of Russell and Mill Street.
It features a phrase - in cursive writing - that will be illuminated by LED Neon flex lighting -the phrase spells out - All we are is all we were.
But Lorraine Steele and Phil McLeod join me in the studio this afternoon.
