Fish includes the National Fisheries Program and the National Fish & Aquatic Ecology Unit.
The National Fisheries Program assists field biologists in attaining the Chief's aquatic priorities and manage aquatic resources from a healthy ecosystem perspective.
Program Initiatives include "Bring Back the Natives" and "Rise to the Future". "Initiatives" are special topics to which we give added emphasis through projects, events, literature and funding. The intent of our varied Initiatives is to help us and our partners move forward to accomplish specific management goals for certain key issues.
The Fish & Aquatic Ecology Unit (F&AEU), lead by Mark Hudy, is a detached staff unit located in Logan, Utah. F&AEU's primary function is facilitating the transfer of technology and technical information from research to field biologist. The F&AEU staff also conducts research, and serves on technical teams addressing aquatic watershed management issues, such as aquatic monitoring.
