Oregon State University Researchers Tracks Fish Migration Patterns to Map Water Sources

A new approach to tracking fish migration patterns has been launched with help from Oregon State University researchers.  The researchers are calling the results of their method, an ichthyograph, a chart that depicts key characteristics of a water source like stream flow, water temperatures, and the timing of upstream migration of fish.

The ichthyograph allows fisheries managers and fish biologists to better understand upstream migration patterns and will help to explore how climate change and human-related activity like water control, floodplain stabilization, and road construction affects fish migration.
