Spawning run presents opportunity to study northern pike | WLUK
SUAMICO (WLUK) — A popular sport fish is on the move in the waters of Northeast Wisconsin. The northern pike spawning run is underway in some areas. Last year, the pandemic stalled research efforts at the site in Suamico, but this spring, crews are back in the field.Over the past eight years, a fyke net off Lineville Road in Suamico has been the center of a science project on northern pike spawning activity. “This is one of the few areas where you could actually monitor the entire spawning run. You can get a lot of great information about their ecology,” said Patrick Forsythe, associate biology professor at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay.
