Walleye, one of the most sought-after species of freshwater sport fishes in North America, has demonstrated appreciable declines in their numbers from their original populations since the beginning of the 20th century. Similarly, Yellow Perch, once the most commonly caught sport fish and an important commercial species in North America, have also shown declines. Compiling up-to-date information on the biology and management of Walleye, Sauger, and Yellow Perch, including research on systematics, genetics, physiology, ecology, movement, population dynamics, culture, recent case histories, and management practices, will be of interest to managers, researchers, and students who deal with these important species, particularly in light of habitat alterations, population shifts, and other biotic and abiotic factors related to a changing climate.

Author Biography

John Clay Bruner, M.Sc., a past chair of the AFS NCD Walleye Technical Committee, authored the phylogeny of the Percidae chapter in the 2011 Biology, Management, and Culture of Walleye and Sauger, and the 2019 Type Specimens of Fossil Fishes: Catalogue of the University of Alberta Laboratory for Vertebrate Paleontology. He edited Wooding's 1994 Lake, River & Sea-run Fishes of Canada. He has published on living and fossil Percidae, Catostomidae, and Pomacentridae. Dr. Robin L. DeBruyne conducts fisheries research on the Great Lakes and other large-lake ecosystems on topics including predator-prey dynamics, population dynamics, effects of ecosystem changes, and has concentrated on fish early-life history and habitat restoration research in the St. Clair-Detroit River System and Lake Erie since 2012. In addition to serving as co-editor, she was the lead author on two of the book chapters.
