  • The Billfish Research Project works to develop collaborative relationships with scientists and anglers around the world to initiate research projects that will help better inform fisheries management. A recent video highlights the work being done.
  • American Rivers provides data on how the Klamath River restoration project lines up with other dam removals throughout history. Read more from Amy Souers Kober.
  • A 25-year effort to turn the Blackfoot River from decay to destination is paying off. Rob Chaney writes about cooperative conservation efforts in a recent article in The Missoulian.
  • Fly fishing for mahseer might be the key to protecting the species, say scientists. As they are increasingly recognized as a prized game fish on the fly, their population numbers are also endangered by poachers, pollution, and dams. Via The World Wildlife Fund.
