Environmental DNA (eDNA) as a Tool for Coldwater Fish Conservation and Management.
South Carolina Department of Natural Resources
Kevin Kubach has been a research fisheries biologist with the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources since 2004, following degrees in Biology and Wildlife & Fisheries Biology from Clemson University. His affinity for fish was shaped in large part by his parents, including a dad who always had an eye for the nearest fishing spot and a mom who let her son borrow the car to go fish the Hooch almost every day the summer before he went off to college. He works primarily on large-scale stream and river assessment studies–collecting data from sites throughout South Carolina to understand how aquatic systems are impacted by changes to the environment, such as urban development. Kevin has been a TU member for 21 years. He lives in Greenville, SC, where he enjoys spending time outdoors with his wife and 11-year-old son.
