Alewives. Bluebacks. Brook trout. Humans. These are just a few of the captivating creatures we study in SEAcomm's Lotic Lab. Using methodologies from across the humanities, natural sciences, physical sciences, and social sciences--including stakeholder interviews and surveys, participant observation, snorkel surveys, electrofishing, structural assessments, and media analyses--we take an expansive systems approach to understanding Rhode Island's lotic ecosystems.
