Individual-Based Modeling: Application to Walleye Stocking
To effect the biomanipulation, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR) has undertaken an intensive walleye stocking program for Lake Mendota since 1987. Over 1.5 million walleye fingerlings have been stocked into the lake from 1987 through 1989. Walleye stocking, albeit at a reduced level, is expected to continue through 1993, at which time the Lake Mendota stocking program will be terminated. Success of the biomanipulation is directly related to success of walleye stocking.
