Please keep us in the loop as to what the findings are.

Interesting stuff.

That is a mass of Yellow Perch roe (eggs).

Cook 'em up for dinner.

Is Yellow Perch an invasive species?
If Putin stopped, he'd be saving Russian lives as well. Never thought the right would have a field day but June 24/2022 it is.

In B.C., the Yellow Perch has been introduced to the Pend Oreille, Kootenay and Okanagan watersheds.

Lakes have limits on different species - perch is 20 at various lakes in the Okanagan.

Correct, and only certain lakes are open to perch fishing. The goal is to stop the illegal introduction of spiny rays into other waterbodies. The only lakes open to fish for them are ones with long established infestations and are listed in the fishing regulations.

Other lakes are closed to fishing for spiny ray species (perch, bass, sunfish). Lakes where new infestations are found will be closed to fishing in an attempt to dissuade illegal introductions of invasives. See the recent article on Garnet Lake by Summerland, closed after some idiot dumped bass in it.

Interesting read too. Funny how our parents influence us, not always for the better. My dad brought home plenty of fish from his fishing trips and dear old mom would do her level best to make sure us kids were innoculated to detest lake Rainbow Trout. Just like the writer in the that story, it took years later to know what was and was not real.

I heard back from UBCO and they are saying it looks like an ovary from a perch or a sucker (containing eggs before they are fertilized of course). So that makes sense. So much for my wild hypothesizing that we might have found some weird new species of who knows what! lol

Does the government still poison lakes to eradicate those introduced species?
I remember them trying it on a couple lakes although it sounds extreme.
