Hunter Hatcher

Electrofishing for smallmouth and largemouth bass


I was born and raised in Spotsylvania County, Virginia and obtained a Bachelor of Science Degree in Fisheries Conservation from Virginia Tech in May of 2015. During my undergraduate career I worked on a vast array of projects with both Virginia Tech and the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries on the many diverse systems occurring throughout Virginia. My research interests lie in fisheries management with specific interests in impoundments and large rivers. My thesis will focus on evaluating the success of seeding terrestrial vegetation on reservoir mudflats and the associated impacts on game fish.
