The Klamath Falls Field Station (KFFS) was established in 1999 at Klamath Falls, Oregon, and conducts research within the Klamath River Basin. The KFFS has facilities and resources to conduct research into the life history, population dynamics, and behavioral ecology of fishes in lentic and lotic habitats within the Basin. The KFFS research program currently emphasizes work on two endangered lake suckers (Lost River and shortnose suckers) in Upper Klamath Lake and Clear Lake Reservoir (California), as well as a number of projects with salmonids in the upper and lower parts of the Basin. The Klamath River Basin and its water resources have been dramatically altered from their historical state as a result of human development, resulting in numerous challenges for resource managers. Research at the KFFS helps managers make informed decisions about resource use in this complex environment. Funding is provided by the U.S. Geological Survey as well as through reimbursable contracts with the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation and other agencies.
