Fall 2008 SNAMP Newsletter: Vol 2. No 1 - Fisher Team Research
The Pacific Fisher is a State and Federal Species of Special Concern. The SNAMP fisher study is designed to determine whether the fisher population in the southern study area is stable or decreasing, which vital rate is most important in population change, and which environmental factors are correlated with these changes. Since Dec '07 we have captured and fitted over 20 different fisher with radio-collars. By the end of the study we anticipate having information on the age, home range and habitat use of around 40 individual fisher. To learn more about this project, please check out the Fall '08 Fisher newsletter!
