The Cooperative Research Units were created to enhance graduate education in fisheries and wildlife sciences and to facilitate research among natural resource agencies and universities on topics of mutual concern. The Vermont Unit, one of 40 units nationwide, is a partnership among the U.S. Geological Survey, the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department, the University of Vermont, and the Wildlife Management Institute.

Research at the Vermont Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit is problem-oriented and provides our Cooperators practical information needed to understand and manage fish and wildlife resources in Vermont. Areas of emphasis include sea-lamprey control, Atlantic salmon restoration, acoustical sampling, food-webs, energetics, landscape ecology, conservation biology, and population modeling.
