Walleye (lakes) FSI : Walleye (lakes) population status history

Description

Walleye in Alberta are located near the northern edge of this species’ range, and compared to southern populations, growth rates are slower, maturity is later and consequently the fisheries are less productive. Historically, walleye were likely in only about half of Alberta’s fish-bearing lakes. Many Alberta lakes are naturally limited by low oxygen, small size, or high salinity and would not have supported walleye.
