Fisheries management in a flow-regulated river on a private ranch

The internship goal is to assist with fisheries management in a flow-regulated river on the Blue Valley Ranch, which owns a large segment of the Blue River. The intern will participate in fishery fieldwork involving electrofishing, food web sampling, and angling, and laboratory work, including processing fish diets (aquatic insect identification), preparation of stable isotope samples, and age estimation using scales and otoliths. The intern will work closely with the Blue Valley Ranch and other stakeholders in the area involved in the relationships among stream flow, habitat, and fishery production. The intern will also have the opportunity to engage with other natural resources tasks and maintenance activities on the Blue Valley Ranch.
