Quantitative Assessment of Pelagic Fishes in Colorado Reservoirs

June 2020 - June 2027

The goals of this project are to implement a statewide pelagic fish assessment, involving paired gill-netting and nocturnal hydroacoustics surveys. We wish to quantify the density
and distribution of key sport and forage fish in Colorado's large standing waters.
