My Story

Hi, I'm Mark Pegg, fisheries ecologist and associate professor in the School of Natural Resources. I'm associated with the undergraduate major in fisheries and wildlife and the graduate specializations in aquatic ecology and wildlife ecology.

Mark Pegg
Mark collects fish on the Mississippi River using an electrofishing boat. The fish are temporarily stunned, weighed and measured and then returned to the water unharmed.

Most of my career has been dedicated to working on fisheries and aquatic ecosystem issues. These interests have generally led me to conduct research centered on the ecology of flowing systems, fisheries management, the impacts of aquatic nuisance species and restoration ecology. I've been at UNL since August 2005.

Specifically, I am interested in aquatic community responses in time and space to environmental conditions such as hydrology, habitat availability and water quality; aspects of fish-population dynamics like survival, age and growth and angler exploitation; how aquatic nuisance species influence ecosystems; and most recently, assessing river-restoration techniques.
