UMaine to Host Diadromous Fish Conference

Contact: Senator George J. Mitchell Center for Environmental & Watershed Research, (207) 581-3244

The 2009 Diadromous Species Restoration Research Network Science Meeting will be held July 22 to 24 at the University of Maine to help shape dialogue about the future of diadromous species restoration and research. The three-day event will feature guest speakers and poster sessions, networking and workshop opportunities, and field excursions.

Diadromous fish migrate between fresh and salt waters. Housed at the Senator George J. Mitchell Center for Environmental & Watershed Research at UMaine, the Diadromous Species Restoration Research Network is an NSF-funded network whose goal is to advance the science of diadromous fish restoration, promote state-of-the-art scientific approaches to multiple-species restoration on a watershed scale, and facilitate interactions among scientists, managers, and stakeholders.

Conference participants will have the opportunity to meet a growing network of researchers and managers focused on the restoration of diadromous fish, other species, and their habitats in the north Atlantic region, including the dam removal project in the Penobscot River watershed.
