Fish and wildlife play crucial roles across ecosystems and in human society. High animal diversity contributes to healthy ecosystems, and many species provide important economic benefits to our communities.
Inland fisheries are critical for preventing poverty and ensuring sustainable livelihoods – but their contributions are often overlooked, say USGS National Climate Change and Wildlife Science Center researchers and partners in a new perspective paper.
Wisconsin's walleye is an economically and culturally important fish in the state. Yet warming temperatures may be threatening this cool-water fish's habitat. Learn about how the Northeast CASC is modeling future walleye habitat in Wisconsin.
The native westslope cutthroat trout has drawn generations of fly-fishers to the remote Flathead River system in western Montana. Learn about the Northwest CASC's research on what warming waters mean for the future of this iconic fish.
The East Coast's only native trout thrives in cold waters and is threatened by warming temperatures. Learn how researchers with NCASC calculated the distance required to drive to streams with wild brook trout in the future as populations change.
