What Is The Aquatic Ecosystems Analysis Lab?
The Aquatic Ecosystems Analysis laboratory conducts [limnological] studies related to the restoration or conservation of aquatic ecosystems. We recognize that science is critical in developing long-term and sustainable public policy. We work closely with local, state, federal, tribal, and nonprofit organizations to assist them in creating management strategies for their projects. These projects include the recovery of native species, management of invasive species, understanding the impacts of land use change (mining, urbanization, etc) and eutrophication on aquatic ecosystem health.
We also assist in the development of natural resource management and conservation plans for the largest, freshwater fishes of world.
