This book documents proceedings of a symposium on muskellunge developed as a memorial for E.J. Crossman. It focuses on the biology, ecology, and management of muskellunge, Ed's favorite fish. The papers include surveys of current ecological, behavioral, and management-related issues for muskellunge fisheries. The symposium was developed to bring researchers and anglers together, and was sponsored by Muskies, Inc. The papers focus on issues of importance to muskellunge populations and are developed to inform the public and fishery managers alike.
