Fisheries Management and Reports

The principal function of freshwater fisheries research is to help manage the fish resources within New York waters. This includes evaluating the status of fish populations for enhancement or restoration. Additionally, regular surveys are conducted to monitor the overall health of fish populations and to establish the effectiveness of stocking and harvest policies.
