Invasion ecology of Round Goby in the Hudson River

August 2022 - December 2024


Participating Agencies

  • New York Division of Marine Resources

We are investigating the invasion ecology of Hudson River round goby (Neogobius melanostomus) at the freshwater-saltwater invasion front of North America. Understanding the ability of round goby to adapt to brackish and saline environments in North America is needed to inform management responses for this rapidly expanding introduced fish.
