The Texas Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit (TCFWRU) was established at Texas Tech University by the U.S. Congress in 1988 and was first staffed in 1989. TCFWRU is part of the National Cooperative Research Units Program that resides within the U.S. Geological Survey, and its mission is to conduct and facilitate research and education activities related to natural resource management and conservation. TCFWRU cooperators include Texas Tech University, Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, U.S. Geological Survey, the Wildlife Management Institute, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Current efforts of TCFWRU focus on aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems. Specific fields of interest include fisheries and wildlife management, aquatic and wildlife ecology, community ecology, ecophysiology, ecotoxicology, reproductive biology, and fish culture. These research and educational efforts are based on the technical expertise of unit scientists and university cooperators.
