Welcome to the interactive web schedule for the 2019 Midwest Fish & Wildlife Conference! The schedule is subject to change (as of November 19, 2018). Please check back for updates. To return to the main Conference website, go to: www.midwestfw.org.

The conference schedule is hosted in SCHED which allows you to search within the schedule, and filter the schedule to show items only occurring on a certain date or within a track/symposia.
  • To view only a certain type of presentation or track, locate the heading "Filter By Type" in the navigation bar. As an example, try clicking on "T01: Fisheries: Great Lakes I".
  • The default view for the schedule is "Simple" which only shows the start time and title of the agenda item. Hover over the button that says "Schedule" to see the different view options. The "Expanded" option will show start and end times, room location, and session description, if there is one.
  • You can build your own schedule by creating a free account with SCHED by selecting "SIGN UP." Watch the "how-to" video to learn more about using Sched. 
  • PLEASE NOTE: Adding agenda items to your schedule through this app does not sign you up for a session. If an agenda item says "pre-registration required" or charges an additional fee, you need to add the item to your registration through the online registration system

ABSTRACT: Aquatic pesticides are effective components to integrated pest management of aquatic invasive species and are regulated at the Federal and State levels. Registration of a new aquatic pesticide requires extensive documentation and frequent communication with regulatory agencies and resource managers. Coordination of research design with resource management agencies ensures maximum applicability of developmental study results. Well designed, executed and documented studies demonstrating efficacy and nontarget safety are critical to Environmental Protection Agency review. Regular communication with State and Federal regulators ensures concerns and requirements are addressed early in the process and increases the probability of achieving regulatory agency approval. Carbon dioxide shows promise as a control tool to prevent the spread of invasive fish, including Asian carps. Lessons learned from submission of a carbon dioxide registration package for use as an aquatic pesticide will be shared.
