Northern pike restoration effort gets help from UW-Green Bay

UW-Green Bay is receiving some attention regarding northern pike research on the
west shore of the bay. Assistant Prof. Patrick Forsythe of Natural and Applied
Sciences is part of a research team sampling the population during spring
spawning time. The northerns leave the waters of the bay to seek shallow marshes
and seasonal runoff ditches for spawning. Among the interesting aspects of the
research is that fishery biologists are seeking to document the impact of
removing two dams at Pamperin Park. It is hoped that, with the barriers gone,
the fish will have access to better habitat and spawning areas along Duck Creek,
upstream within the Oneida Nation boundaries.
