Colorado pikeminnow reproducing, and the offspring are surviving.
To ensure accurate data is being collected on fish being lost from angling, mortality estimates must include both fish harvested and fish that are released and then die as a result of fishing.
The different types of fish the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency team will catch through electrofishing can tell them about a river’s quality.

Fish farms getting an assist from chickens; discovery could have global implications for Atlantic salmon industry

Atlantic salmon face a number of challenges in the wild, ranging from the presence of river dams to continued fishing pressure off of Canada and Greenland.
