Movement dynamics, distribution, habitat use, and species associations of juvenile burbot in tributaries of the Kootenai River

June 2014 - December 2024


Participating Agencies

  • Idaho Department of Fish and Game
  • Idaho Department of Fish and Game 

The purpose of this project is to evaluate survival, movement, and habitat use of burbot in Deep Creek, a major tributary to the Kootenai River. Results of this research will be used to guide stocking practices associated with the management and conservation of burbot in western river systems.
