Shannon Skelton, CFI Global Fisheries Management
Literally. E-mail from my boy Shannon Skelton, Senior Fisheries & Aquatic Biologist / President of CFI Global Fisheries. Shannon was shocking a stretch of one of CFI's recent rehabilitations last week.
T, here are pics of a couple of the fish that decided to move into the newly enhanced habitat that we built on a 1.5 mile stretch of river last fall. This reach of river harbored just under 6 total lbs. of fish per acre before we conducted the habitat enhancement. Upon compiling the data after last week's electrofishing studies, this same reach totaled 31.6 lbs. per acre. This is completely due to natural recruitment, for we've never stocked fish in this project reach. Pictures may not be the best, but it shows you how happy these fish are in their rehabilitated environment
This is EXACTLYwhy in late June I am headed down to Ft. Collins, CO to hang with Shannon and check out a spring creek restoration project his team is working on.
