Allen Lab

Welcome to our Lab

Our research program addresses fish population and community responses to changes in fishing mortality, habitat, and species interactions. We have worked on a variety of fish and fisheries issues in lake, reservoir, river, and marine environments. We utilize a combination of field collections and population modeling to predict how fish populations respond to fishing regulations and variation in habitat quantity and quality.

We've got a new project in the works. We'd like to develop bast handling practices for black bass to ensure low injury and high survival after catch and release. If you are interested in bass conservation and would like to be involved visit the project page on RocketHub. Everyone who helps out will have access to photos and video throughout the project. We also have some great incentives donated by people who love bass just as much as we do.
