Yellowstone Lake Telemetry Lake Trout Detections 2011-2015

Metadata Updated: October 29, 2023

We initiated a project in 2011 to identify lake-wide movement patterns and spawning areas of invasive lake trout in Yellowstone Lake, WY. We implanted acoustic transmitters in lake trout and established a network of stationary telemetry receivers in Yellowstone Lake. Lake Trout tagged with acoustic transmitters (Vemco V - series) were tracked with stationary acoustic receivers (Vemco VR2W - 69 kHz) from 2011 to 2015. The number of active receivers ranged from 17 - 65 as short term goals of the project changed. Coordinates for each detection represent the location of the receiver reading the transmitter. Additionally, detection ranges can vary from apporximately 500 - 1200 meters (but see for more details). In total, the dataset consists of more than 24 million detections from 470 Lake Trout and 21 Yellowstone Cutthroat Trout that were tagged over the course of the study. Any use of trade, firm, or product names is for descriptive purposes only and does not imply endorsement by the U.S. Government.
