Today, the science being conducted by CRITFC is well respected, peer-reviewed, and helping improve the understanding of fish biology, genetics, ecology, and other fields.
CRITFC’s Fish Science Department is organized into three groups:
- Watershed Ecology
- Production & Restoration
- Planning, Monitoring, and Evaluation
It also has two programs:
- Hagerman Genetics Laboratory
