Warm Springs Fish Technology Center is working with federal, state, and agency partners to provide management support of inter-jurisdictional coastal and riverine fishes, such as Robust Redhorse, Lake Sturgeon, Pallid Sturgeon, and Brook Trout. The Southeast Conservation Genetics Lab is implementing research projects on numerous freshwater mussels, and threatened and endangered species such as the Spotfin Chub and the round rocksnail. The Cryopreservation Lab works on the collection, storage, and cryopreservation of sperm to provide a management tool for conserving genetic resources to enhance fisheries programs and reverse the population decline of threatened and endangered fishes.
