Dr. John Post's research program focuses on the processes that control growth and survival of juvenile fish and their recruitment into adult stocks. These processes are at the core of our understanding of habitat requirements, fisheries productivity, and harvest dynamics of freshwater fisheries. He and his graduate students use a combination of laboratory and field experiments, field observations, and computer models to identify, quantify, and extrapolate findings over ranges of spatial and temporal scales. Current applications include assessments of: sustainable fish yields, interactions between native and exotic species, instream flow needs, food web interactions, and climate change impacts.
