Apogee ecologists are intimately familiar with the monitoring of fish. Staff ecologists have conducted many fish surveys from small headwater streams to large river systems including watersheds of the Kentucky River, Big Sandy River, Rockcastle River, Green River, Little Barren River, Powell River, Cumberland River, Clinch River, and Mississippi River.
In addition to common fish species Apogee ecologist have many years of experience dealing with the federally threatened blackside dace (Phoxinus cumberlandensis). Our ecologists have conducted exploratory surveys and several years of monitoring for this federally listed species.
Most recently our staff completed a survey for the federally threatened spotfin chub (Cyprinella monacha) at Holston Army Ammunition Plant in Kingsport, Tennessee and participated in surveys for the gilt darter (Percina evides) in the North Fork of the French Broad River, North Carolina.
