St. Lawrence River Walleye Telemetry Project
June 2022 - June 2032
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) and the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation are interested in learning more about the movement patterns of St. Lawrence River Walleye. Spawning tributaries on the U.S. shoreline have been identified including, the Oswegatchie River, Brandy Brook, Little Sucker Brook, Chaumont River, and Kents Creek. This study hopes to further our understanding of Walleye movement, mixed stock analysis, habitat selection, and spawning locations in the St. Lawrence River. This project will assist in management decisions and develop habitat restoration opportunities in the St. Lawrence River.
