DNR spying on native river fish to watch their habits


It’s the flip side of keeping invasive carp out of Minnesota waters, and it requires high-tech spying on 50-pound Flathead catfish, prized paddlefish, sturgeon, muskies, bigmouth buffalo and other native fish lurking in the Mississippi and St. Croix rivers.

Last week as a special DNR fishing crew continued to tag these critters with ultrasonic transmitters, agency officials were meeting over how to keep the research alive.
