Native Aquatic Species Restoration Webinar Series

This seminar focuses on current native fish and mollusk restoration endeavors on-going in the United States. It will describe a historical perspective of many of the causes for our native aquatic species declines but will also highlight the outstanding efforts of many conservation organizations, federal and state agencies, and academia to slow and reverse these trends. It will cover restoration efforts from bull trout in Crater Lake NP to brook trout in the Carolinas to roundtail chub in Arizona to mollusks in the Southeast. Many of these efforts are now being supported by the National Fish Habitat Action Plan and coordinated through several regional initiatives and joint ventures.
