Growth Rates of Stocked Walleye in Several Georgia Reservoirs

The walleye (Sander vitreus) is a large predatory fish distributed throughout Canada and the United States, ranging from Central Canada southward to the Tennessee and Mississippi River drainages. Because of its importance as a recreational sportfish, walleye growth has been studied extensively in the northern portion of its distribution. However, little information is available regarding growth of this species in the southeast, particularly in Georgia. The objectives of this study were to quantify growth of walleye in several north Georgia reservoirs and to compare the growth rates of...
