Reproductive ecology and habitat relations of the robust redhorse in the Pee Dee River.

Duration

August 2007 - June 2010

Narrative

Research was conducted to accomplish the following objectives with the ultimate goal to improve our understanding of robust redhorse reproductive and habitat ecology to ensure the long-term survival and population enhancement of this imperiled species.
1. Quantitatively describe changes in potential and observed robust redhorse spawning habitat before and after implementing a spring minimum flow.
2. Describe how robust redhorse use the habitat before and after minimum flows are established.
3. Assess how flow augmentation may affect survival of viable eggs.
