Fisheries investigations provide a vast amount of knowledge that fishery management teams can use to improve the quality of Iowa's fishing resources. There are seven fisheries research stations in Iowa. Each has a particular field of investigation. Therefore a number of fisheries research topics may be addressed by multiple research teams within the boundaries of any given management district. The overlap of these topics of research exemplifies the diversity of Iowa's fishery resources. Research is made possible through funding by the Sport Fish Restoration Program.
