Study Launched to Track Trophy Ohio River Catfish
Trophy-sized Ohio River catfish are abundant in the lakes, rivers, and
reservoirs of Ohio, and now they will be tracked.
Catfishing has been increasing in popularity with anglers across the
country for a while now, but little is known about the trophy-sized
fish that are available to anglers who fish the Ohio River. A new
5-year study launched by the state of Ohio seeks to help biologists
learns more about the movement patterns of Ohio River catfish that
measure in excess of 25 inches.
The study’s main focus will be to learn how often the catfish move
between different river pools and how far the fish travel among the
main river and its tributaries. Study data will be collected through
the use of tags, angler reports and specialized telemetry data.
Studying the movement patterns of Ohio River catfish will offer
several challenges to the researchers mostly due to the size and
complexity of the river system.
The Ohio River stretches almost 1,000 miles between its starting point
in Pittsburgh and its confluence with the Mississippi River in
Illinois. It has 19 different lock systems and dams and runs along the
borders of Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, Kentucky, Indiana, and
Illinois. This presents unique challenges because of varying
regulations and management laws amongst the different states.
