Pelican Predation Potential on the Fish Community of Strawberry Reservoir


July 2013 - June 2014


This research will quantify the actual impacts of pelican feeding on fishes and specifically on the spawning cutthroat trout population in Strawberry Reservoir, a highly valuable Utah fishery. If the predation is substantial relative to natural and harvest mortality, the we will make management recommendations to reduce impact of pelicans on valued fishes.
