Fisheries Management and Reports

The principal function of freshwater fisheries research is to help manage the fish resources within New York waters. By managing, we mean evaluating the status of fish populations to enhance some fisheries and to restore others. We also undertake regular surveys to monitor the health of fish populations and to establish the effectiveness of stocking and harvest policies.
