Fish species of greatest conservation need in Iowa's nonwadeable rivers: distribution, relative abundance, and influences from potential movement barriers


Project goals and objectives:

  • Describe the distributions of fish species of greatest conservation need in Iowa’s nonwadeable rivers.
  • Evaluate the influence of potential movement barriers and anthropogenic stressors on fish distributions in Iowa’s nonwadeable rivers.
  • Determine effects of dams and instream habitat characteristics on fish assemblage structure in Iowa’s nonwadeable rivers

This project was completed by Michael Quist and Clay Pierce as Principal Investigators, Timothy Parks as student investigator, Gregory Gelwicks, Greg Simmons, and Thomas Wilton.
