Communities

Biologists study freshwater communities to answer important questions about the species that inhabit Florida’s lakes, rivers and canals.



Minimum Flows and Levels

Biologists are studying how freshwater fish community dynamics may be affected by varying water flows and levels.

Surveys

Learn how biologists conduct freshwater surveys and use these data for ongoing studies and long-term monitoring of freshwater communities.

Mussels and Clams

North America has the greatest diversity of freshwater mussels in the world, and many of these species are highly imperiled. Biologists work to learn more about Florida’s freshwater mussels and clams.


FWC Facts:
Panthers space themselves so they will have enough food. If panthers lived close together, all the deer would soon be gone, and there wouldn't be enough to eat.
