Spontaneous hybridization and introgression between walleye (Sander vitreus) and sauger (Sander canadensis) in two large reservoirs: Insights from genotyping by sequencing

Genotyping by sequencing is used to examine fish from two large reservoirs with mixed populations of walleye and sauger in Saskatchewan, Canada and concludes that hybridization and introgression are occurring in Saskatchewan reservoirs.



Competition Potential between Saugers and Walleyes in Nonnative Sympatry

Abstract Sauger Sander canadensis populations throughout North America have exhibited declines over the past few decades. Various factors may be contribute to the reduced population abundance of

Reproduction and Early Life History of Sauger, Stizostedion canadense, in Lewis and Clark Lake

Sauger reproduction and early life history have been studied to determine factors affecting year-class strength in Lewis and Clark Lake, a 28,000-acre reservoir on the South Dakota-Nebraska border, and adult year- class strength was inversely related to water level fluctuations over the spawning grounds.

Assessing the Feasibility of Native Fish Reintroductions: A Framework Applied to Threatened Bull Trout

A framework developed to assess the feasibility of one type of translocation—reintroduction was applied to the potential reintroduction of threatened bull trout Salvelinus confluentus into the Clackamas River, Oregon.

Genetic Assessment of Lake Sturgeon Population Structure in the Laurentian Great Lakes

Lake sturgeon from 27 spawning locations were analyzed using 12 microsatellite loci and consistent genetic breaks were observed among three clusters of spawning populations: Hudson Bay–northern Lake Superior, (2) southernLake Superior, and (3) the rest of the Great Lakes.

Changes in Percid Populations and Species Interactions in Lake Erie

Improved regulation of exploitation and present efforts by United States and Canadian government agencies to improve Great Lakes water quality, are expected to improve the success for long-term maintenance of percids in Lake Erie.

Characteristics and Spatial Segregation of Sympatric Saugers and Walleyes in the Ottawa River, Canada

AbstractFew comparative studies exist on the sympatric populations of Saugers Sander canadensis and Walleyes S. vitreus, especially in northern rivers. Depth-stratified, standardized index netting

Determination of relative survival of two stocked walleye populations and resident natural-origin fish by microsatellite DNA parentage assignment

Walleye (Stizostedion vitreum) from two northern Minnesota spawning stations simultaneously stocked as fry into five southern Minnesota lakes had different survival rates, and natural-origin walleye that descended from previous stockings significantly increased in percent of all sampled walleyes over the study.

The Status of Nebraska Fishes in the Missouri River. 6. Sauger (Percidae: Stizostedion canadense )

Saugers were once common representatives of the Missouri River fish assemblage. Prior to channelization and impoundment, they comprised from 10 to 65% of the main channel big-river fish group. They

Movement of Saugers in the Lower Tennessee River Determined by Radio Telemetry, and Implications for Management

Abstract Since 1979, abundances of sauger Stizostedion canadense have declined in the Tennessee River system. Reasons for this decline may include overharvest, loss of spawning habitat, and low

Growth Rate Studies of Saugers, Stizostedion Canadense Canadense (Smith) and Yellow Perch, Perca Flavescens (Mitchill) from Lake of the Woods, Minnesota

Female perch grew more rapidly than the males and were longer-lived and there appeared to be a correlation between the abundance of saugers in various year classes and the June rainfall and cooler summer temperatures during the year of hatching.
