The Whirling Disease Initiative is overseen by the National Partnership for the Management of Wild and Native Coldwater Fisheries, a national advisory team coordinated through the Montana Water Center. Each year, the Partnership's Whirling Disease Steering Committee reviews an impressive set of research proposals, choosing those that will effectively address high-priority research needs. The Partnership has allocated up to $660,000 of federal dollars annually for whirling disease research.
