Walleye habitat use
The walleye population in Black Bay, Lake Superior, crashed in the mid-1960’s and has only shown signs of recovery within the past decade. To evaluate current restoration efforts and their impact on Walleye in Black Bay, we are examining the movement ecology of Walleye along the north shore of Lake Superior. This work is in collaboration with the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry and Fisheries and Oceans Canada. Graydon McKee is evaluating relationships between fish movement and life history strategies in Walleye.
