Case Studies

In this document, Downstream Strategies (DS) documents several real-world scenarios for which the Fish Habitat Decision Support Tool has been utilized to prioritize areas for conservation actions. Each case study describes the problem or question posed to DS by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service, the methods DS used to answer the question, and the resulting priority areas. The first six scenarios deal with the Chesapeake Bay brook trout model while the final scenario focuses on the Great Plains Fish Habitat Assessment.
