Diana Miller, Wyoming Game and Fish Department fisheries biologist, will discuss fisheries management in the West as part of the Harlow Summer Seminars Thursday, June 25, at the University of Wyoming-National Park Service (UW-NPS) Research Center. The center is located at the AMK Ranch in Grand Teton National Park.

Miller will discuss “Fisheries Management in the West: Case Studies on Jackson Lake and the Hoback River” at 6:30 p.m. at the AMK Ranch, located north of Leeks Marina. A barbecue, at a cost of $5 per person, will take place at 5:30 p.m. Reservations are not required. For more information, call the UW-NPS Research Center at (307) 543-2463.

Fisheries management in the United States has changed dramatically through time, Miller says. She is a fisheries biologist in the upper Snake River drainage of Wyoming.

“How we got where we are today plays a large role in how we move forward into the future,” she says.

Her talk highlights how changes in fisheries management trends across the West influence local fisheries, specifically Jackson Lake and the Hoback River. Miller also will discuss how fisheries are surveyed and how management decisions are made based on the survey results.

She received her bachelor’s degree in wildlife biology from Colorado State University and her master’s degree in fisheries management from UW. A Wyoming native, Miller researches and monitors fisheries within the area, talking with anglers and evaluating different management alternatives.

The UW-NPS Research Center provides a base for university faculty members and government scientists from throughout North America to conduct research in the diverse aquatic and terrestrial environments of Grand Teton National Park and the greater Yellowstone area.
