In addition to registering 98 fish today, our crew was busy analyzing gut contents of ~80 fish harvested over the weekend. The results have not been entered and summarized yet, but it’s clear that most fish in the system are focusing in on gizzard shad as their primary food source. I will be sure to get a report out on the diet work later in the week, but our primary objective now is removing otoliths from all of the sturgeon heads that have been donated to date.
Good luck to folks heading out on the ice tomorrow!
We are committed to service excellence.
