Mitchell Center Seminar Series: "Dams and Fish: Understanding our impounded legacy"

Speaker: Joseph Zydlewski, Future of Dams Project Researcher
Professor, Wildlife, Fisheries, & Conservation Biology
Assistant Unit Leader, USGS Maine Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit

Dams affect fish species in some obvious ways. These effects, and their proposed solutions, are often simplifications of complex systems that ignore more subtle effects. This talk will explore six ways in which dams can influence fish and fisheries, drawing on the Penobscot River impoundment and  modifications as a case study.

Unleashing Rivers

There are more than 14,000 dams on New England’s rivers, and many are small, aging, or derelict. The Nature Conservancy examines the issues that are the focus of the EPSCoR Future of Dams project.
