UW-Green Bay’s Prof. John Stoll a leader in new fisheries study

UW-Green Bay Prof. John Stoll (Public and Environmental Affairs) will be one of the lead researchers on a new study designed to calculate the social, recreational and economic impact of the region’s fishery. Given the area’s world-class walleye fishing, Great Lakes spotted musky population, whitefish, bass, yellow perch, trout and salmon opportunities, the impact is significant. Green Bay represents a key destination for the 178,000 in-state and out-of-state anglers who participate in Wisconsin’s Great Lakes sportfishing each year. The Wisconsin DNR released the story, yesterday.
