Abstract

Recovery efforts for threatened and endangered fish species are hampered by lack of knowledge of their reproductive ecology. Habitat requirements and environmental stimuli necessary for reproduction are often unknown and vary widely among species. For Great Plains riverine fishes, this is often complicated by the high turbidity of the system in which the species occur, which precludes direct visual observation of behavior. Innovative methods for collectng behavioral data are required to better understand the conditions necessary for successful reproduction.
