Developing Ultrasound Imaging as a Fish Research and Management Tool at Reclamation's Fish Facilities

Project ID: 2817
Principal Investigator: Susan Broderick
Research Topic: Ecosystem Needs
Funded Fiscal Years: 2009 and 2010
Keywords: None

Research Question

* Can the emerging technology of ultrasonic imaging of fish be used to develop information critical for managing threatened and endangered fish for river management operations and at Reclamation's fish facilities?

The initial effort was funded in fiscal year (FY) 2008 as a scoping report. This proposal is a result of that scoping effort.

This applied research and information transfer proposal would adapt ultrasonic imaging of fish to the specific needs of Reclamation fisheries biologists and facilities managers.
