Fisheries Assessment

In cooperation with the on-campus Tennessee Cooperative Fishery Research Unit, Center researchers delve into the study of native and stocked fish habitat, movement and survival.  Research results protect endangered fish populations during critical periods and reduce stocking efforts to match habitat and demand.  The fisheries research has also branched into the study of endangered mussels and their in-stream flow needs and the efforts of recovering endangered species.

The following are fisheries assessment-related projects activated in the 2012-2013 fiscal year. For descriptions of specific projects, click on those with links.
