Fish ecology and management. My graduate students and I conduct applied research to assist in answering current questions in fisheries management as well as testing of ecological principles on which fishery management is based.
- Salmonid Ecology and Management
- Conservation of Native Fishes
- Life history/otolith microchemistry
- Fish passage and movement behavior
- Winter ecology
