Minnesota DNR Asks Anglers How Many Catfish They Catch

ST. PAUL  (AP) – To boost fish management efforts across the state, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is asking anglers to fill out surveys about the amount of catfish they’re catching and eating.

The online surveys are part of a DNR project that includes tagging catfish to better understand their movement. The department says online surveys will work better than traditional creel surveys, as catfish anglers often fish at night.

For those who request them, the DNR will send waterproof paper diaries for anglers to record their catfish angling and consumption. The department wants anglers to record the species, length, tag number and location caught of all fish caught, whether they’re kept or released.
