Fisheries Ecology & Conservation

Fisheries Ecology and Conservation is one of six possible concentration areas within the Natural Resources Conservation undergraduate major.  Its focus is on aquatic systems and their inhabitants: how to manage, conserve and restore fish and aquatic animal populations and their habitats; how to develop sustainable fisheries programs; effects of land use, water flow and contaminants on aquatic ecosystem health and fish community structure; and how to conserve and enhance biological diversity.
