Walleye, Stitzostedion vitreum, has potential to be an aquaculture species in the North Central Region because:

  • it is native to the region;
  • it maintains optimum growth at temperatures lower than many other current aquaculture species (such as channel catfish);
  • it is a highly-prized sport fish;
  • its flesh is considered a delicacy; and
  • the fillets are high in protein and . low in fat, making walleye an attractive food selection for today’s health conscious consumer.
