University of Nevada, Reno, professor receives exclusive American Fisheries Award of Excellence
Date:4/1/2010

RENO, Nev. Rowing around in the Siberian arctic to get water and sediment samples, setting tracking devices for invasive large-mouth bass in Lake Tahoe or digging quagga mussels out of Lake Mead is all part of the job for Sudeep Chandra, assistant professor of limnology and conservation ecology at the University of Nevada, Reno.

For his outstanding work in Nevada lakes, including his prolific record of publication and leadership on important fisheries and aquatic ecosystem management issues, the American Fisheries Society California-Nevada Chapter has bestowed Chandra with their highest honor, the Award of Excellence.

"This award is infrequently granted, because so few fisheries professionals meet the award's high standards," Pat Coulston, chairman of the awards committee, said. "The last time the award was granted was 10 years ago. It's a prestigious and exclusive award."

Chandra's prolific scientific work on some of Nevada's highest priority fisheries management issues clearly places him at this high standard, Coulston said. Recipients of the award must have achieved statewide recognition as a major authority in California and/or Nevada fisheries management and science.

"I am deeply honored to be nominated and receive this award," Chandra said. "I am grateful that the selection committee has bestowed upon our laboratory the Award of Excellence. I will continue to work diligently to use scientific information to conserve and restore fishes in the Great Basin."

Chandra often serves on, or presents information to, technical and policy groups addressing fisheries conservation and aquatic ecosystem management concerns for Lake Tahoe, Lake Mead, Walker Lake, Pyramid Lake and the Truckee River. His focus on applied science has allowed him to develop a very constructive working relationship with the fisheries arm of the Nevada Department of Wildlife.

Chandra is a leading researcher on invasive species in Lake
