ST PAUL, MN - DNR researcher showcases 25 years of

northern pike ecology, conservation and management history

A long-time fish biologist with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has written a book on the ecology and management of northern pike in Minnesota.

The illustrated 224-page book, “Northern Pike,” includes management history, ecology, illustrations, photography, and 25 years of pioneering research conducted by Rodney Pierce, a DNR fisheries research biologist who authored the book.

The book chronicles how management of this game fish and resource has changed, and how geology, water quality and human populations directly impact pike populations. The book also provides new ways of looking at and managing the species.

“The book combines northern pike natural history, scientific research, historical data and other interesting historical information into a book that will appeal to general readers and recreational anglers,” said Pierce. “We included many photos of historical and recent fisheries management activities, and we interpret the results so readers get a better understanding of why research remains an important piece of fisheries management.”

The book is available for $40 plus postage and handling from the University of Minnesota Press at www.upress.umn.edu, the DNR gift shop at 500 Lafayette Road in St. Paul, and from other major booksellers.

Any proceeds will come back to DNR and the University of Minnesota Press.
