Description of Event:Dr. Ronald Bruch, a Senior Fisheries Biologist/Work Unit Supervisor with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, is featured as one of the main interviewees and characters in *Mysteries of the Great Lakes.* When Ron first held a sturgeon as a child, it was love at first sight. From that moment, he knew that he wanted to make the protection of sturgeon his life's work. He continues to be a passionate advocate for the conservation of this ancient species of fish. Ron, who holds a doctorate and master's degree in zoology and a bachelor's degree in biology, serves on the Editorial Board of the Journal of Applied Ichthyology and is a member of several sturgeon conservation groups including the World Sturgeon Conservation Society. He has written numerous scientific publications regarding the health of sturgeon populations in the Great Lakes region
