The Iowa State Conservation Commission and Iowa State College cooperate in a program of research, extension and education in the field of fishery management. This cooperative program, initiated in 1941, was patterned after that of the earlier established Cooperative Wildlife Research Unit (Scott, 1939). The research work is carried on by the permanent staff at the college and by graduate students some of whom are on fellowship appointments. The problems being investigated include those deemed most important in the management of Iowa's fishery resources and include work on streams, natural lakes, reservoirs, artificial inpoundments, and farm ponds.
