Topics: Conservation fishing

The Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department has been collecting data from 11 Lake Champlain Fish Community Monitoring Stations. Every summer, two 125-foot long nets are set out at each location for a 24 hour period. The focus is on capturing yellow perch, white perch, pumpkin seed, rock bass and other fish species found in the warm water communities of the lake. This allows them to keep tabs on the population and to measure the impacts of invasive species and fishing pressure over a period of time.
