Stillwater Scientists presented at Oregon AFS conference

Two Stillwater scientists presented papers at the 2010 Oregon Chapter of the American Fisheries Society Annual Meeting, February 23 – 26th in Eugene, Oregon.  During the ‘Salmon in the City’ concurrent session Thursday morning,  Derek Booth, PhD, PG, PE, Stillwater President/Senior Geologist and University of Washington Research Professor lead with a talk entitled ‘The National Research Council’s Review of Stormwater Permitting: Is There a Regulatory Path to Healthy Urban Streams?‘. The session culminated with a talk from Steve Ralph, Senior Aquatic Ecologist, entitled ‘Applying a Scientific Framework for Adaptively Managing Restoration of Urban Streams, and Identifying Monitoring and Research Needs’. 

In addition, Matt Sloat, a former Stillwater Sciences fish biologist and current Doctoral Candidate at Oregon State University presented in the Freshwater Fish Ecology session, discussing ‘Density-dependent Selection on Metabolic Indices of Survival and Growth in Territorial Stream Fish’.

This conference draws participants from a wide range of disciplines interested in fisheries ecology and as expected, stimulated conversation that focuses on success in science, management, and recovery of our fisheries and aquatic resources.
