A fellow muskie researcher, Kevin Kapuscinski, at the State University of New York - College of Environmental Science and Forestry has characterized the diets of YOY muskies in the St. Lawrence River. Click the link below (great URL for the blog) to see what these little tikes are munching on. Banded killifish would not have been one of my guesses!
Dr. John Farrell of SUNY - ESF runs the 1,000 Islands Biological Station on the St. Lawrence River. Some of the most important research on St. Lawrence muskies have come from Dr. Farrell, his lab, and the 1,000 IBS. I would love to see the station some time; what a setting to carry out your research on! Take a look at the station's website (1,000 Island Biological Station) and peruse the photo gallery for really cool fisheries research photos, including the giant muskie captured below.
