Abstract:Reports on efforts in 2009 to monitor the age and size structure of the spawning population on spawning grounds and evaluate reproductive potential; estimate age composition and sex composition of angler-caught fish to better parameterize a lake-wide catch-age model in its final stages of development; monitor relative abundance of pelagic age-0 yellow perch and their zooplankton prey in offshore waters (≥ 3 miles from shore) of Lake Michigan; determine relative abundance of demersal age-0 yellow perch and the availability of their macroinvertebrate and zooplankton prey; collect age-0 yellow perch in nearshore waters in a manner consistent with guidelines developed by the Yellow Perch Task Group’s lakewide age-0 yellow perch assessment; monitor abundance and diet of juvenile yellow perch.
