For the K-State Extension’s Wild Research webinar series, the next event will present, Colorado Pikeminnow in the San Juan River & Use of Telemetry in Fisheries Research.
Have you ever wondered how big the largest minnow in the United States is? If you said nearly 6 feet long and up to 80 pounds, you would be correct! The Colorado pikeminnow, currently listed as endangered by the US Fish and Wildlife Service, is known to migrate up to 200 miles each spring for spawning throughout rivers in the southwest. Researching this traveling fish requires the use of telemetry and tagging.
Join John Cleveland, Kansas State University Master’s student, as he discusses his research on the Colorado pikeminnow in the San Juan River.
