Summary

The Geological Survey is offering a funding opportunity for a CESU partner to conduct research on the population dynamics of warmwater fishes in the Mississippi basin and non-native invaders in the Colorado River basin. The project aims to develop population models for these species in response to changing hydrology and water temperature, and use these models to forecast their invasion into new river segments. The funding opportunity is a Cooperative Agreement with an award ceiling of $450,000 and an award floor of $200,000. The application deadline is March 27, 2024, at 5:00 p.m. ET.

Description

The US Geological Survey is offering a funding opportunity to a CESU partner for research in understanding how different thermal and flow regimes affect population dynamics of warmwater fishes that are native to Mississippi basin and non-native invaders in the Colorado River basin including walleye, smallmouth bass and green sunfish. The objectives of the project are to 1) develop population models for these species that respond to changing hydrology and water temperature, and 2) use these models to forecast how different reservoir operations (and resulting hydrology and thermal regimes) may facilitate or stop their invasion into new river segments in the Colorado River basin.
