Professor Chris Somers has been working with the SWT to gather data for his research as a Biology professor at the University of Regina and the SWT has also recently provided funds to assist him with a current research project to track walleye that have been caught and taken through the weigh in process at walleye tournaments.  Professor Somers also holds the position of Canada Research Chair in Genes and the Environment.

Prof. Somers and I have worked together on a document to provide information to help tournament anglers keep their fish healthy in the livewell and through the weigh in process.

Tips to help keep your walleye healthy and minimize mortality

Prof. Somers has also provided this power point presentation for tournament participants and organizers (power point or a power point viewer required).
