Fishing Research Reports

Fisheries research reports are technical in scope and provide an in-depth, scientific approach to address a suite of questions about our fisheries and habitat to inform management decisions for our agency. Our fisheries research is based on sound science and supported through the Federal Aid in Sport Fish Restoration. Note: all reports open as PDFs in separate window.
