Studying Lake Trout Movements in Peace Reach

Williston Reservoir

Peace Reach Lake Trout Movements

Williston Reservoir has seen a dramatic increase in Lake Trout abundance in the past decade, however, no information is available on the movements, life history, and reproductive behaviour of these fish. This project involves implanting 40 acoustic transmitter tags in adult Lake Trout within the Peace Reach of Williston Reservoir, and the subsequent monitoring of fish movements using an array of 28 acoustic hydrophone receiver stations, already deployed and maintained by a fisheries research team from Carleton University.
