The Aquatic Ecology Lab maintains a fleet of 5-6 vehicles for field use and laboratory support. At present, our fleet is composed of 4 trucks and 2 SUVs:
- 2006 Ford Escape Hybrid
- 2002, 2008, and 2015 Ford F-250
- 2000 Ford F-150
- 2012 Dodge Durango
Vehicles are available for use by members of the AEL and other labs within the department. All users are charged a flat rate that is deposited into a vehicle maintenance/replacement account. These funds support repairs, gas, and vehicle replacement. Replacement is dictated by the state of the fleet and current needs of the lab.
