Description: 

A recent study out of Michigan State University's Department of Fisheries and Wildlife designed a stream model that predicts thermal habitat suitability for freshwater species. The study acted as supplemental research for the Michigan Department of Natural Resources' efforts to develop a comprehensive management plan for the state's stream salmonids. The study produced ranges of temperature sensitivities for stream brook charr, brown trout, and rainbow trout. The authors concluded by promoting their methodology of thermal habitat suitability projection as an effective resilience-based approach for supporting the sustainability of coldwater habitats and salmonid populations.
