Abstract

The trout-perch, Percopsis omiscomaycus (Walbaum), is one of the more abundant forage fishes in the larger lakes of midwestern United States and central Canada where walleye, Stizostedion v. vitreum (Mitchill), yellow perch, Perca flavescens (Mitchill), and coregonids predominate. It has been suggested that it may have considerable effect on perch and walleye populations of these lakes. The present study describes growth, food habits, population structure, year-class strengths, and reproductive capacity of the trout-perch in relation to its population dynamics in lower Red Lake, Minnesota.
