Biography

Scott Titzler joined the Ecology group in 1999 and is currently a fisheries ecologist who manages and supports a diversity of freshwater river and estuarine research projects. He utilizes leading-edge and PNNL developed technology and methods to assess juvenile and adult fishes in response to river flow management, modified aquatic systems, energy development and infrastructure modifications. Most recently, Scott’s research has included the use of acoustic telemetry, hydroacoustic, and Sensor Fish technologies to evaluate fish passage, survival and behaviors of both juvenile and adult large-river fishes. Additionally, he supports projects that evaluate samlonid habitat and hydrodynamic conditions near aquatic structures.
