Taft attorney Tommy Sokolowski was part of a research team led by Dr. Fred Van Dyke whose work was published in the scientific journal Ichthyology & Herpetology. The team’s ecology research titled “Distinguishing and Employing Two Species of Fish in Assessment of Stream Quality” focuses on the assessment of stream quality using two closely related species of fish, the Mottled Sculpin (Cottus bairdii) and the Slimy Sculpin (Cottus cognatus), in the Manistee River in Michigan. The research provides essential information for using these species as habitat quality indicators, including their distribution, differentiation, and associations with environmental conditions.
