Fisheries Research

Research is just one of many jobs done by the Fisheries Division of the Nebraska Game & Parks Commission.  Yes, we have a research staff that does some of that work.  But, we cannot get it done all by ourselves.  Over the years we have contracted with several universities to do some of that research.  The University of Nebraska-Lincoln has and continues to be an important partner.  We completed several years of research on our sandhill lakes in conjunction with South Dakota State University.

Recently, the Kearney Hub printed a story about fisheries research being done by the University of Nebraska-Kearney.  The story features Melissa Wuellner, one of the professors leading that research.  Take a few minutes, follow the link, and read about it, Fish Finder:  UNK Professor’s Research Improves Angling Opportunities in State.


If you read the story, you will see that fisheries research being done by UN-K covers a lot of topics.  That is always the case.  We always have more questions than we have answers.  The thing about science, about research, is it just leads to even more questions.
