Amy Regish

Amy Regish is a Research Physiologist at the S.O. Conte Anadromous Fish Research Laboratory in Turners Falls, MA.

Her research has focused on the physiological response of fish species to natural and anthropogenic alterations of aquatic ecosystems. Some of the many challenges faced by fish species are from warming temperatures due to climate change, stream acidification, of cold water streams, man made impediments to migration, and contaminant exposure. The impact of these perturbations on osmoregulation, stress physiology, and thermal stress is of particular concern in the conservation and restoration efforts directed towards anadromous and cold-water fish species such as salmon, shad, river herring, brook trout, sturgeon, and lamprey in their native ranges.
