Dear Fisheries Professional,

Organizers of an upcoming symposium on walleye management asked me to pass
along the following message:

Walleye Management Symposium: Recruitment, Stocking and Regulations

2000 Midwest Fish and Wildlife Conference
December 3-6, 2000
Minneapolis, Minnesota

Sponsored by the Walleye Technical Committee of the
North Central Division of the American Fisheries Society

Contacts: Joe Larscheid, 1999-2000 Walleye Technical Committee (WTC) Chair,
Iowa Department of Natural Resources, 122 252nd Ave, Spirit Lake, IA

As walleye fishing continues to grow in popularity throughout the Midwest,
the increasing demands placed upon walleye populations have made managing
these fisheries a challenging task. Fisheries professionals have
investigated factors surrounding walleye recruitment, developed innovative
stocking strategies and implemented restrictive harvest regulations to
maintain walleye populations and protect them from over-harvest. The WTC
believes that it would be beneficial for fisheries professionals to share
current findings from innovative studies and management activities, and to
update the information presented at the 1990 and 1995 Midwest Fish and
Wildlife Conference symposiums.

Papers that address advances in walleye management stemming from better
knowledge of walleye recruitment, stocking, or innovative management will
be considered for inclusion in the symposium. Eleven to 15 symposium
papers will be selected for publication in a special module of the North
American Journal of Fisheries Management. Presenters interested in module
publication will be required to submit their manuscripts prior to the
symposium. Contact the WTC representatives or access the website at for more information.
