We expect to provide data and analyses on the population status of river otters in Kentucky. Our findings will assist KDFWR in determining if current hunting and trapping regimes will ensure a sustainable harvest. Benefits of this study include research-based management recommendations for otter populations and the aquatic systems they inhabit in Kentucky. Results of this study wilI be provided as: 1) a completed PhD dissertation; 2) three yearly status reports summarizing results and analyses; 3) technical papers published in regional, national, or international journals; and 4) all raw data submitted to KDFWR in spreadsheet format.
