Steve is a Supervising Fisheries Biologist with the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection Fisheries Division, overseeing the Diadromous Fisheries and Habitat Conservation and Enhancement programs. Throughout his 30+ year career with DEEP, Steve has given a strong voice to diadromous fish across the state, region, nation and world. His efforts have led to the construction of over 50 fish passage structures and numerous dam removals in Connecticut, restoring access for diadromous fish to hundreds of miles of historic habitat.
