From material obtained during the winter of 1933-34, the summer of 1934 and the winter of 1934-35, a study has been made under the direction of Professor Ferris Neave of the Zoology Department of the University of Manitoba, of the rate of growth and food of Yellow Pickerel (Stizostedion vitreum Mitchill), and Sauger (Cynoperca canadensis Smith). The material was obtained from within a few miles of Gimli on Lake Winnipeg, although a few additional pickerel were taken from Lake Winnipegosis for comparison. A brief survey of these two species in Manitoba was made by Dr. A. Bajkov in 1930. His results may be found in a paper entitled "Fishing Industry and Fisheries Investigations in the Prairie Provinces." To my knowledge no other work on pickerel and sauger in Manitoba has been published.
