Much effort has been expended to clean up the Buffalo River during the past 25 years, including stocking walleye to establish a spawning population in the river. After looking at food abundance, water quality and habitat suitability, and walleye survival in the Buffalo River, the results of this study will allow state fishery managers to evaluate the success of the stocking program. This study also repeated a fish survey conducted in 1981 to identify changes in the Buffalo River fish community over time.
