Back-calculated lengths-at-age for Walleye from Lake Mille Lacs, 2000-2011.

Description

Back-calculated lengths-at-age for Walleye (Sander vitreus) from Lake Mille Lacs. Walleye were captured by Minnesota Department of Natural Resources personnel in fishery-independent gillnets (five multifilament nylon mesh panels with each panel measuring 15.2 m wide and 1.8 m high; bar-measure mesh sizes of the panels were 19.1, 25.4, 31.7, 38.1, and 50.8 mm) set in the fall (mid September to early October) from 2000 to 2011.
