Assessing the feasibility of using acoustic monitoring for Burbot conservation, management, and production

Duration

February 2015 - January 2016

Narrative

This project represents a pilot study to determine whether the calls reportedly produced by Burbot during spawning can be used to locate spawning grounds, quantify spawning activity, and enhance production of the species in hatcheries.
