U of A Professor Honored for Work with Trout

NOVEMBER 14, 2006 - Posted at 7:59 a.m. CST

 

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Compared to salmon, which migrate from the ocean into the freshwater streams where they were hatched, trout are pikers. And the federal Interior Department has honored a University of Arkansas professor who found that out.

Dan Magoulick, a professor of biological sciences, works with state catch-and-release programs as he explores trout movement and mortality. Magoulick designed a project involving data from anglers and radio-tracking devices.

Magoulick said that, so far, the data have shown that fish caught in catch-and-release areas stay in those areas. Even though Magoulick's study will continue for two more years, his research so far suggests that, during an entire summer, a rainbow trout might migrate 200 to 300 feet.
