In the Wild: Helping the Trout Population Grow

Posted on 7/26/21 11:32 AM

With help from faculty and with cooperation from the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy, Nick Christensen,  a student in IUP's biology graduate program, is studying the effects under-the-road culverts have on the migration patterns of the fish.

“We want to track to see if fish from Population A are actually going up and mixing with Population B to see if we're kind of getting back to normalcy after humans have put a little hitch in nature.”

“My main goal is really to provide opportunities for students to gain skills and experiences that will land them jobs and careers that they're excited about.”
