Resilience of walleye fisheries in Wisconsin

Walleye, an important sport fish, is undergoing population declines in some Wisconsin lakes. This project investigates the possible roles of fish harvest, climate variability, loss of habitat and invasive species in walleye population trends. The project focuses specifically on the assessment of possible management options for walleye fisheries of Wisconsin's inland lakes, especially in the northern part of the state.
