Research was conducted to gather quantitative information on the population and production dynamics of stream-dwelling trout occurring in North Carolina State Parks. The goal of the research is to better understand the ecological and biological processes associated with these populations and to form an objective information base upon which to form fisheries and ecosystem management strategies, planning, and implementation.
