Fishes of the Upper Mississippi River System have recreational and commercial value, conservation potential, and can be used to assess the ecological integrity of the aquatic ecosystem.
The objective of the standardized monitoring is to quantify the status and trends of fish populations and communities and identify relations with various other ecological attributes. The findings can be used to address fisheries management concerns.
The Long Term Resource Monitoring Program uses a multigear and multihabitat sampling design to collect fish data in six study pools/reaches.
