Adirondack Fishery Research Program
Cornell researchers have studied the fish and fisheries of the Adirondack Mountains for over 60 years. Founded by Dwight Webster, the AFRP focuses on a range of lakes owned by private cooperators across the Adirondacks. Our Little Moose Field Station, hosted by the Adirondack League Club, offers a base of operations for a wide range of projects. In addition to maintaining productive fisheries for heritage brook trout, landlocked Atlantic Salmon, and other species, we monitor and manipulate ecosystem conditions to understand how acid rain, species invasions, and climate warming are affecting these spectacular temperate lakes.
