    Cows eat forage.

    Fish eat prey.

    Yes, we do sample prey fish when we do our "standard fish surveys". No, we do not make that information available to the public for a couple of reasons. First prey species vary from waterbody to waterbody, so comparisons would be far less useful.

    Secondly, in most cases we are not targeting the prey species when we are sampling fish populations. Yes, we collect prey fish too, and yes, we collect data from those fish, but if we wanted statistically valid samples of prey fish populations we would be using different gears and following a different sampling regime. Most of the time we do not do that and our prey fish data is less precise.

    However, if you have questions about what the primary prey may be in any of our waters, if you cannot find those answers, just ask! I will tell you in most of our large, irrigation reservoirs, gizzard shad are the big players. In our smaller reservoirs in eastern Nebraska, where gizzard shad are hopefully absent, then young-of-the-year panfish are major players. And then there are a whole host of other critters. . . .

    They must catch forage fish when they do sampling. It would be useful to know what the forage is and its abundance.

    Good to know. I was afraid someone made a decision to reduce the amount of field sampling.

    It usually takes a while to get them all posted, if I am not mistaken, each district puts together their own sampling report of their local lakes. They don't get all of them at the same time and as the "mothership" receives these reports they will post what they have

    whitetips It appears there are less sampling reports than previous years. Any ideas on why?
