Ep. 179: Institute of Fisheries, Wetlands & Aquatic Systems

The Institute will:

Conduct key, cutting-edge, interdisciplinary research needed to anticipate, inform, or resolve priority issues and maintain healthy fisheries, wetlands and aquatic systems in Missouri, regionally, nationally, and internationally.

Ensure conservation workforce development through internships, cooperative education efforts and graduate assistance programs that guarantee the next generation of researchers, conservationists, managers, and industry leaders are trained in a setting that provides real-world learning opportunities and cross-disciplinary training.

Build a pipeline of talent to help fill recurring vacancies at the Missouri Department of Conservation, as well as conservation agencies/organizations across the country.
