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.
