Description

In 2016, the Freshwater Research Initiative provided a grant to the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission which funded a seasonal position to aid in collecting biological data on wild trout and other fisheries resources in the West Branch Susquehanna and Middle Susquehanna drainages. The seasonal staff assisted PFBC biologists in collecting important information on wild trout resources as part of the Unnassessed Waters Initiative and other programs. The data collected will be used to guide future management and protection of the streams. As part of their training, the seasonal staff also assisted in collecting information on various lake and river surveys in the Susquehanna watershed. The presentation will provide a summary of the work which was accomplished with the Freshwater Research Initiative grant.
