Imperiled Aquatic Species

USGS fisheries and aquatics scientists provide science support to natural resource managers by investigating the factors that contribute to the conservation and recovery of at-risk species. By investigating the impacts of environmental stressors and habitat requirements of imperiled aquatic species they are able help with their restoration. These investigations lead to more effective and viable conservation actions that reduce the need for formal listing of aquatic species as threatened or endangered and support the goal of downlisting or delisting species.
