For over 35 years, this project has monitored abiotic and biotic factors, earning the title of the longest established survey in Suisun Marsh. The Suisun Marsh Fish Study plays a significant role in
detecting trends in environmental fluctuations including effects influenced by anthropogenic activity. The long-term data collected has enabled numerous studies involving fish invertebrate communities in sloughs, waterfowl nesting patterns and population dynamics, the continuous monitoring of aquatic ecosystem changes in response to physical stressors, and many more. In the coming years, data collected will be used in various research that contributes to a greater understanding of the ecology of Suisun Marsh and the most effective conservation management strategies.
