Tracy Hall Science Center room 102, 12:30 - 1:30 PM 
A partnership by state biologists and a dedicated group of anglers is yielding new information on one of Utah's largest and most elusive fish; the Tiger Muskie. In a great example of citizen science, this information will help biologists better manage the Tiger Muskie population for the very anglers that have been helping them.
