Factors Contributing to the Physiological Disturbance in Walleyes during Simulated Live-Release Angling Tournaments

  title={Factors Contributing to the Physiological Disturbance in Walleyes during Simulated Live-Release Angling Tournaments},
  author={Shaun S Killen and Cory D. Suski and Steven J Cooke and David P. Philipp and Bruce L. Tufts},
—The goal of the current study was to examine the physiological disturbances in walleyes Sander vitreus that occurred during the different phases of a live-release angling tournament. To achieve this, we took blood and white muscle samples from walleyes during experiments that simulated different aspects of a liverelease tournament (angling, live-well confinement, and weigh-in procedure). In accordance with recent findings for largemouth bass Micropterus salmoides, the physiological disturbance… CONTINUE READING
