Recruitment of walleye and white bass in irrigation reservoirs

Duration

January 2006 - December 2013

Narrative

The purpose of this project is to gain an understanding of the factors affecting recruitment of walleye and white bass in irrigation reservoirs. The primary foci are documenting the relative importance of spawning habitats and determining when the suspected recruitment bottleneck for walleye and white bass occurs in southwest Nebraska irrigation reservoirs.
