Canada geese

Canada geese


A technique on trial for increasing predator survival during winter is to aerate lakes. Walleye and pike survive the winter better and may then predate on carp larvae and fingerlings, tipping the balance to native species. The resident Canada geese like the opening in the ice - I wonder if another problem is going to result? Photo by Peter Sorensen, 2008.
