Madison – Wisconsin and Minnesota scientists are studying a little-known and vulnerable fish whose disappearance could mean smaller musky, pike and walleye in the states’ inland lakes.
The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources is three years into its first comprehensive study of the cisco, a slender white fish that scientists say is an important food for other fish and may serve as an early warning of problems in fisheries.
