Fish surveys; Fishing nets; Cannon River (Minn.)


Newly designed one-man nets were used extensively between 1973 and 1977 to collect fishes in a variety of stream habitats in southeastern Minnesota. They proved to be especially effective In winter sampling of benthic stream fishes such as Etheostome zonale, Etheostome ceeruleum, Percina phoxocephala, Percina shumardi, Percina caprodes, Rhinichthyes cataractae, and Noturus flavus. Effectiveness and potential importance of these one-man nets as winter sampling devices was demonstrated during three consecutive winters of use In the Cannon River at Welch, Goodhue County, Minnesota.
