The fish telemetry project in Hamilton Harbour made the local press this week in The Hamilton Spectator.
“If you hook a Hamilton Harbour walleye or largemouth bass with an antenna sprouting from its midsection, don’t be alarmed. It’s all part of a major effort to better understand fish stocks and the behaviour of fish populations in the bay. Certain ones are being implanted with radio telemetry equipment so their movements can be monitored. Scientists will take note of where walleye, bass, pike and other species spawn, if they spawn at all. Fisheries and Oceans watch their movements throughout the year and see whether they venture into the lake. “
