Assessing Distribution and Movement of Blue Catfish in Kansas Reservoirs


January 2012 - December 2014


The goal of this project is to document where blue catfish spend their time within Kansas reservoirs, when and if they move out of reservoirs, and why these distribution and movement patterns occur. These results will assist in the development of effective fisheries management procedures for reservoir sportfish.
