Flint River Fish and Habitat Restoration
Project Title
Assessing Flint River fish distribution and habitat before and after dam removal and restoration
Project Code
Project Duration
March 2023 - February 2028
Project Description
We will evaluate habitat availability for and movement of fish species prior to and post-removal of the Hamilton Dam. Data will be acquired through habitat evaluations and mark and recapture of fish using T-bar tags as well as PIT and acoustic telemetry. Data obtained from this study will be used to identify significant changes in habitat availability and target species behavior and movement patterns including spawning site selection as well as navigation of waterway post removal.
