Science-based Solutions

CalTrout is established as a credible scientific leader on fish and water issues in California. Through its Science program, CalTrout improves its scientific foundation of applied conservation strategies while developing responses to statewide-big picture threats to native trout and salmon such as climate change, ongoing drought conditions, introduced and invasive species, and hatchery reform. The program enables CalTrout to provide scientific research, data collection, and analyses to inform adaptive management strategies and viable conservation alternatives aimed at restoring native trout and steelhead throughout their historical range.

Two positions, created in 2014 between California Trout and UC Davis Center for Watershed Sciences, work toward these science goals: The Peter B. Moyle California Trout Endowed Chair in Coldwater Fishes and the CalTrout-UC Davis Wild and Coldwater Fish Researcher, currently held by Rob Lusardi, Ph.D., one of the authors of the SOS II: Fish in Hot Water report.
