DNR to hold crayfish field survey in Germantown
Germantown - The Department of Natural Resources, in partnership with the village of Germantown and Wisconsin Lutheran College, will deploy cages in a variety of stormwater ponds in the village of Germantown. These cages are designed to capture crayfish. The crayfish trapping is part of a larger study to determine what type of crayfish are in the ponds. Red Swamp crayfish, an invasive species, was discovered in two ponds (Esquire Estates and the Police Pond) in the fall of 2009. This study repeats a 2009 study to determine if the invasive Red Swamp crayfish have established themselves in any other ponds.
The study encompasses ponds located in an area bordered by Freistadt Road to the north, Maple Road to the west, Donges Bay Road to the south, and Pilgrim Road to the east. Each pond in the study area will have two to five baited cages placed in them. The cages will be checked twice a week. The study extends from Sept. 15 through Nov. 30.
Questions can be directed to Heidi Bunk, lakes biologist for the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, at (262) 574-2130.
