Sampling designs and population dynamics of burbot in the Green River system: tools for management


January 2013 - December 2018


Although burbot are a species of high conservation concern over much of their distribution, they are an invasive species in the Green River, Wyoming, where they were illegally introduced. The purpose of this research is to provide managers with information on the distribution, habitat associations, and population dynamics of burbot in the Green River. In addition, the project is evaluating a number of different sampling gears across multiple systems and habitat to determine the best methods for removing burbot from the system.
