    I received a B.S. degree with two majors (biology and environmental science) from EWU in 2013. My project involves the tagging and tracking of wild redband trout in tributaries of Lake Roosevelt.  45 wild redband trout will be tagged with Vemco hydroacoustic tags and tracked for one year to observe their movements in the reservoir, entrainment, and return to natal tributaries. This project is a continuation of Aaron Stroud's project. I will be changing the anesthesia methods and will be also testing which anesthetic method is the best (electroanesthesia, MS-222, and Aqui-S 20E) by comparing swimming ability and cortisol levels of hatchery rainbow trout.
