Mundahl, N.D. 1994. Distribution of fish species within ten watersheds in southeastern Minnesota. Final report submitted to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. Unpaged.


Fish species distribution patterns and watershed fish species lists were generated by sampling fishes at 50 sites within 10 watersheds in southeastern Minnesota during 1992 and 1993. Twenty-seven species of fishes were collected, with brown trout being the most widespread. The number of species collected per watershed ranged from 0 (Homer Creek) to 21 (Whitewater River), with species number apparently related to watershed size and sampling effort. Species distribution maps and watershed species lists generated by this project are conservative, as they include only those species encountered during this project.
