Abstract

Altering food web structure has been shown to influence mercury (Hg) concentrations in sport fish. Here, we describe a whole-system manipulation designed to assess the effectiveness of stocking relatively high-quality, low-Hg prey (rainbow trout, Oncorhynchus mykiss) as a means of increasing...

Abstract

We studied long-term trends in catches per unit effort (CPUE; fish h-1) of four sport fish taxa in the Flathead River, Montana, following changes in hydroelectric operations at the Sliš Ksanka QispProject (SKQP; formerly Kerr Dam). Prior to 1997 SKQP operations caused frequent, unnatural flow...

Abstract

Catch-and-release sport angling for large-bodied fishes is a popular recreational pastime, but is also a major introduction source of invasive fishes that can impact native biodiversity. Introductions of large non-native fishes are often part of fisheries management practices to diversify angler...

Abstract

Stocking and electrofishing occurrence and abundance data for northern pike Esoxlucius L. in >3800 km of French rivers across 7 years were compared to assess the effect of recreational fisheries stocking programmes on wild pike populations. A positive relationship was found between the additive...

Abstract

The optimal terminal gear in hook-and-line recreational fishing maximizes landing rates and minimizes injury to the fish because some fish will be released after capture. We designed a novel rig configuration in artificial lure fishing for top predators and examined its effectiveness in angling for ...

Abstract

We compared relative abundances, average weights, and growth rates of 6 game fish species before and after the 1999-2001 partial dredging of Lake Winona, a eutrophic, urban lake in Minnesota, to determine whether lake dredging sustainably changed fish population structure to the benefit of anglers. ...

Abstract

Serological assays were conducted for anti-viral hemorrhagic septicemia virus (VHSV) antibodies in four species of fish in Wisconsin (Bluegill Lepomis macrochirus, Brown Trout Salmo trutta, Northern Pike Esox lucius, and Walleye Sander vitreus) to examine spatial and temporal distributions of...

Abstract

The practice within recreational fisheries to release captured fish back to the wild, known as catch-and-release (C&R), is an increasingly important strategy to protect fish stocks from overexploitation. However, C&R is a stressor and since animal reproduction is particularly sensitive to...

Abstract

Recreational freshwater fisheries are key components of local economies in many regions. The quality of these fisheries can be affected not only by harvest but also by catch-and-release practices. Documenting catch and release among sport fish taxa is, therefore, important to fisheries researchers...

Abstract

The premise of catch-and-release recreational angling is that postrelease survival is high. Therefore, it is common for anglers, management agencies, and conservation organizations to share information on handling practices and other strategies that are believed to improve the welfare and survival...
