Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Units Program: Arkansas
Education, Research and Technical Assistance for Managing Our Natural Resources

Arkansas Technical Assistance Activities


The Buffalo River in Arkansas is home to diverse array of stream fish

As part of our mission, each of the Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit scientists routinely provides technical assistance ranging from data analysis support, workshops, or consultations on a variety of natural resource issues.

Arkansas Unit scientists serve on various working groups, committees, and offer courses for wildlife and fisheries professionals. The Arkansas Unit offers assistance to natural resource managers on designing experiments and analyzing subsequent results.
