Burbot (Lota lota)

Most research on burbot in Alaska revolves around sampling burbot with baited hoop traps (fyke traps) to estimate length composition and/or abundance. Rigorous studies were completed throughout the late 1980's extending into the early 2000's. Most of this research was centered around the Glennallen/Paxson area where overharvest likely took place in many lakes in the 1970's and 1980's. Research has been limited the last several years as current management strategies seem to be providing sustainable harvest rates.
