The Coldwater Streams and Trout Habitat team is located in Blacksburg, Virginia on the campus of Virginia Tech University. We are part of the Forest Watershed Science Research Work Unit (SRS-RWU-4353). The mission of the team is to acquire new knowledge about factors that influence the distribution, abundance, and production of fish and other fauna. The team performs research in the areas of stream habitat and fish ecology, which provides land managers with guidelines on how to maintain, recover, or increase the quantity and quality of fish and other native fauna.
