Assessment of Trout Management in Georgia


January 2016 - December 2019


We are engaging in a collaborative assessment to help GA DNR update or formulate a trout management strategy that will satisfy a plurality of GA’s trout anglers and be relatively robust to identified critical uncertainties. The overarching goal for this project is to increase both the amount and usability of socioecological information available to managers when making fisheries management decisions.
