Fishery Population and Habitat Assessment in Puerto Rico Streams: Project F-50.8

October 2017 - October 2023


Participating Agencies

  • Puerto Rico Department of Natural and Environmental Resources

We are compiling and synthesizing the most relevant information on the freshwater and diadromous fishes of Puerto Rico and publishing it in a comprehensive book. Information on the life history, distribution, identification, biology, ecology, conservation, and management of Puerto Rico fishes is to be included. A primary source of this information is the research findings from research conducted by the NC Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit on fishery populations and habitats in streams and rivers. These research findings will be supplemented by previous research and investigations published in the primary literature, and various agency reports on the relevant species and habitats will also be included.
