Fish & Aquatic Ecology Unit


The mission of the Forest Service Fish and Aquatic Ecology Unit is to identify emerging aquatic resource issues, develop technology to help address these issues, and transfer this technology to field biologists.


The Fish and Aquatic Ecology Unit will provide scientifically sound, cost-effective technologies to aquatic resource specialists in support of the conservation and restoration of aquatic communities on Forest Service land.

What We Do

The Fish and Aquatic Ecology Unit works with federal and state research organizations and universities to develop technology to address emerging resource issues. Once this technology is developed we disseminate this technology to aquatic resource specialists through, continuing education workshops, presentations, publications, and on-site visits.
