BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Researchers hope to learn more about the movement of walleye in Lake Erie.

In the next several weeks, New York state environmental staffers will retrieve more than 100 acoustic receivers in Lake Erie that record the movements of walleye and other fish. Then they will download the data.

The state Department of Environmental Conservation is working with other Great Lakes states and Ontario to study walleye movements in Lake Erie with small acoustic tags that continually transmit signals to identify individual fish. Tagging will continue for the next two years.

Results from the multi-year study will provide fisheries managers with insights into walleye migration patterns, habitat use and survival.
