Arizona Technical Assistance Activities

Dr. Scott Bonar meets with European scientists to discuss freshwater fish sampling methods.  Development of standardized sampling methods allows communication and data sharing across large regions

Unit scientists offer a variety of fish and wildlife technical assistance to state and federal cooperators and private organizations. This assistance has included workshops on fish and wildlife monitoring techniques, conservation genetics and techniques for working with the public on fish and wildlife issues; assistance and advice with agency threatened and endangered species recovery groups; technical consultation on fish and wildlife issues for scientists and managers in other countries; and review of data and reports from management agencies and universities.
