Understanding links between fish and their environment
Fish populations and communities are inextricably linked to habitat. Trout Unlimited’s conservation success depends on understanding these linkages, and then applying that understanding to guide habitat restoration to sustain healthy trout and salmon populations into the future. We work with various partners to develop and apply sophisticated modeling approaches and use cutting-edge fisheries techniques to reveal these linkages at a local scale and across broad landscapes.
Trout Unlimited has carried out an array of field studies to improve our understanding of how habitat complexity and condition affect trout and other sensitive species.
