Texas Cooperative Fish & Wildlife logo

Current efforts of Texas Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit focus on aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems. Specific fields of interest include fisheries and wildlife management, aquatic and wildlife ecology, community ecology, ecophysiology, ecotoxicology, reproductive biology, and fish culture. These research and educational efforts are based on the technical expertise of unit scientists and university cooperators.
