Summary

Recreational fisheries offer invaluable benefits to the communities they serve, including economic support, food security, and enhanced social connection with natural areas. In North America, bluegill are one of the most important species in terms of providing accessible, harvest-oriented recreational fisheries. In Wisconsin, they are the most caught, most harvested, and second-most targeted species in the state’s recreational fishery. Climate change offers further challenges. Warming temperatures and associated impacts have the potential to affect fish communities and their habitat with unpredictable implications for angler behavior, which can then cause further impacts on fish populations. Significant knowledge gaps exist in understanding [...]
