  • A statewide survey of the inland waters of Wisconsin was initiated in 1974 by the Bureau of Research, Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources to establish a comprehensive data base on the distribution and relative abundance of all fish species. The St. Croix River basin was sampled from 1975 through 1983 at 920 stations by research personnel, at 10 stations by Dr. James Underhill and his students from the University of Minnesota, at 10 stations by fish management personnel, and at 1 station by students of Dr. George Becker from UW-Stevens Point. An additional 257 stations were partially sampled by fish management personnel and other collectors.
