R/V Neeskay

The Neeskay is the School of Freshwater Sciences' primary research vessel. "Neeskay" is derived from the language of the Ho-Chunk, a Wisconsin Native American tribe, and translates as "pure, clean water." The Neeskay has operated as a research vessel since 1970. It provides year-round access to the Great Lakes and has a fully functional platform and floating laboratory.
