“Wisconsin’s Inland Trout Populations: 2018 Update on Trends and Research” by Matt Mitro
Matt Mitro, Coldwater Fisheries Research Scientist at WDNR, will be speaking about Wisconsin’s inland trout populations at our January 3rd chapter meeting. He’ll give us an overview of recently completed and ongoing trout research projects such as the use of archival tags to measure thermal habitat use by brown trout during summer; the distribution, prevalence, and intensity of gill lice infecting brook trout in Wisconsin streams; temporal trends in trout abundance and recruitment; and brook and brown trout age and growth.
Matt will also fill us in on what’s next for trout research in Wisconsin and answer any of our questions on trout research or management issues.
