Introduction:

In 2005, a survey of the nonwadeable portions of the Minnesota River was completed to document occurrences and critical habitats for fish species that are rare or categorized as threatened or special concern. Surveys were separated into two major categories based on methodology; standardized whole fish community assessments using a boat-mounted electrofisher (boom shocker) and non-standardized methods utilizing various fish capturing equipment. Additional rare fish surveys were completed on the St. Croix River to follow up on work done in 2004 as part of this State Wildlife Grant's original proposal.
