New Study to Track Movements of Walleye and Lake Whitefish in and Around Green Bay

February 10, 2018

The U.S. Geological Survey, the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, the Michigan Department of Natural Resources and the Great Lakes Acoustic Telemetry Observation System are collaborating on a large-scale study to determine movements of walleye and lake whitefish in and around Green Bay.

This important research will provide new information regarding seasonal movements of individual fish and help determine which spawning locations are critical to the sport and commercial fisheries for these species.

The study consists of implanting transmitters into 300 walleye and 400 lake whitefish. The transmitters are black cylinders (as shown in the attached photo, below) that are surgically implanted into the body cavity of the fish. These transmitters periodically send out a coded signal that is detected by an array of more than 150 acoustic receivers located in and around Green Bay. The transmitters will allow tracking of fish for up to four years.… Read the rest
