Wyoming Range Native Fish and Energy Development

Alex Berryman and Richard Walker electroshocking fishes in North Beaver Creek in the Wyoming Range.


July 2012 - December 2019


This study will address the effects of energy development for native fish communities. Specific objectives that will be addressed are:
1. Evaluate habitat and water quality characteristics that influence the presence and abundance of native fish (Snake River and Colorado River cutthroat trout, mountain sucker, mottled sculpin, and speckled dace).
2. Evaluate how the presence and intensity of energy development influences habitat and water quality.
