What he learned about habitat and behavior will help every angler
Outdoor Canada is pleased to present Blue Fish Radio—podcasts about the future of fish and fishing in Canada. The program, produced and hosted by Lawrence Gunther, is dedicated to sharing first-hand angling knowledge, scientific discoveries and supporting local champions who protect and enhance their waters.
In this episode of Blue Fish Radio, Lawrence Gunther talks to fisheries biologist and PhD candidate Matt Windle, of Cornwall, Ontario’s St. Lawrence River Institute of Environmental Sciences. As part of a recent research project, Windle trapped some 8,000 natural and invasive baitfish, to study their habitat, health and more. What he learned reveals a lot about the sustainability of larger predator fish (that is, the gamefish we like to catch.)
