The Lake Sarah experiment: Genetic research continues into southern Minnesota’s premier walleye fishery

This year’s take on Lake Sarah yielded 136 quarts of walleye eggs during the first week of May. Those eggs were sent to the DNR fisheries hatchery in Waterville. While some of the walleye fry hatched there will be headed back to Lake Sarah, most of them will be used to augment the walleye populations in other southern Minnesota lakes, with the hope of creating a naturally reproducing walleye fishery elsewhere. (Minnesota DNR)

‘This could be the key to self-sustaining walleye fisheries throughout the southern part of the state.’
