Despite the frequently high biomass of sculpins and their numerous ecosystem functions, the traditional fisheries management emphasis on sport fishes has led to a general neglect of small-bodied, nongame fishes, such as sculpins, in both research and :// Abstract– Food resource partitioning between Siberian sculpin (Cottus poecilopus) and Atlantic salmon parr (Salmo salar) was investigated throughout a summer season in the subarctic River Reisa, northern two species had almost identical diets, feeding primarily on benthic invertebrates and selecting the same prey species. There was no strong segregation in the diel feeding rhythms

    The invasive round goby Apollonia melanostomus (formerly Neogobius melanostomus) has negatively affected benthic fish communities throughout the Great Lakes. In this study, we compared the sensory physiology and behavior of three native species - slimy sculpin Cottus cognatus, spoonhead sculpin C. ricei, and logperch Percina caprodes - with those of the round goby to determine the mechanisms The limnological study of Toolik Lake began in the Summer of This research was an outgrowth of the arctic IBP project which had focused mainly on small Arctic pond ecosystems on the Alaskan Arctic coastal plain. It was thought desirable to study larger, deeper lakes which contained  › Life Sciences › Ecology.

      Slimy sculpin (n = 49 total) were trapped at 22 locations in the Nushagak River using minnow traps and a pole-seine ( m long, mm mesh size).Locations ranged from headwater tributaries to the lower main-stem river ().Water samples were taken from every major tributary and from the main-stem river channels upstream and downstream of tributary confluences (n = 95 waters samples).   The slimy sculpin C. cognatus is the only other sculpin species that has been found to co-occur with the torrent sculpin in Montana (Gangemi ). Whereas interbreeding between the two species is possible, the limited genetic work that has been conducted has not shown any evidence of hybridization (Hendricks )

The general ecology of the slimy sculpin (Cottus cognatus) in Lake of the Experimental Lakes Area, northwestern Ontario. [L C Mohr; Canada. Department of Fisheries and Oceans. Western Region.] Interactions among the benthic community are typically overlooked but play an important role in fish community dynamics.

We examined the diel feeding ecology of Slimy Sculpin (Cottus cognatus) from Grout Brook, a tributary to Skaneateles Lake. Of the six time periods examined, Slimy Sculpin consumed the least during the nighttime ( h and h). Abstract. We tested the role of the slimy sculpin (Cottus cognatus), a benthic fish, in structuring the rocky littoral invertebrate community in Toolik Lake, isons of sculpin gut contents and prey community structure indicated that these fish forage selectively, eating proportionally more large and motile prey, and proportionally fewer small and sessile :// Non-native Oncorhynchus mykiss (Rainbow Trout) have been shown to have negative effects on native salmonid populations.

It is found in both streams and lakes, including the Great Lakes. The slimy sculpin is sometimes mistaken for a baby burbot.

Their general appearance is typical of Coastrange Sculpin; the head is broad and flat and the body tapers gradually to a moderately deep, Interspecific competition for a food resource (fish eggs) was examined in a laboratory setting between two common benthic organisms of the Great Lakes, the slimy sculpin (Cottus cognatus) and crayfish (Orconectes virilis).

).Moves into shallow water to spawn (Ref. ).In some areas, they are common in brackish water (Ref. ), presumably moving to and from fresh water, at least for spawning (Ref. ).Feeds mostly on aquatic insect larvae and nymphs but also on crustaceans. Summer stream temperatures strongly influenced sculpin distributions, with mean August water temperatures increasing in order of reaches characterized as: Columbia Slimy Sculpin-dominated, syntopic, Rocky Mountain Sculpin-dominated, and no sculpin.

Columbia Slimy Sculpin occurred in cold tributaries of the Blackfoot, Clark Fork, Reintroductions are a common approach for preserving intraspecific biodiversity in fragmented landscapes. However, they may exacerbate the reduction in genetic diversity initially caused by population fragmentation because the effective population size of reintroduced populations is often smaller and reintroduced populations also tend to be more geographically isolated than native General Description.

The Cedar sculpin is a new sculpin species in Montana within the old Cottus confusus group. This determination is based on recent genetic work by the USFS and MTFWP. This sculpin is a very distinct species by genetic distance, but more closely resembles the slimy sculpin.

It seems restricted to the St. Regis River and some ?elcode=AFC4E
