Conservation Fisheries' goal is to restore fish populations that have been eliminated because of pollution or habitat destruction. They were the first facility in the Southeast to propagate rare, non-game fishes for recovery work. J.R. Shute, Co-director of CFI, will discuss these and other activities, including non-invasive monitoring of the status of populations of rare fishes in the Southeast. CFI's restoration efforts include work in the Conasauga River.
