DESCRIPTION:  Burbot is a species that has gained increasing attention over the past decade.  Despite this increasing attention, much still needs to be learned about this species.  Management and research of burbot in the western U.S. are diverse and range from conservation and restoration efforts in native populations to control and eradication efforts in non-native populations.  The purpose of this symposium is to gather fisheries personnel currently working with burbot to gain knowledge and improve management.
