The Department of Environmental Protection and Fish and Boat Commission will be holding a webinar on December 14 starting at 1:00 p.m. to discuss the findings of a multi-year study investigating the causes of population decline among smallmouth bass in the Susquehanna River.
The Causal Analysis/Diagnosis Decision Information System (CADDIS) process was used to identify and eliminate candidate causes behind a smallmouth bass population crash that began in 2005, as well as a host of other maladies affecting smallmouth bass in the Susquehanna River basin.
DEP and PFBC staff will outline the need for the study and the analysis of candidate causes in an online presentation.
