The stocking tool introduced in this management brief calculates the most appropriate size to stock Walleye fingerlings in lakes invaded by predatory Rainbow Smelt. The publication also suggests basic strategies for assessing the size structure of Rainbow Smelt populations, and increasing the effectiveness of Walleye stocking efforts.
A Morphometric Approach for Stocking Walleye Fingerlings in Lakes Invaded by Rainbow Smelt
Aim of the resource:
Managers can use the stocking tool’s morphometric model to estimate the minimum size of Walleye fingerlings necessary to establish a healthy population based on the size structure of Rainbow Smelt populations.
