YELLOW. In this week’s NDG&F Department web short, fisheries biologists share information on how perch are trapped and transported from Hobart Lakes in eastern North Dakota to other waters to supplement and start new fisheries.

BROWN. A good article on field ethics from QDMA looks at public perception on tagging an animal that has been lost, and then several weeks later, found. From state to state, the author gets more information and public insight on the field dilemma.
