Keywords:Deepwater Sculpin, Myoxocephalus thompsonii, George Lake, Manitoba
AbstractTwo adult female specimens of Deepwater Sculpin, Myoxocephalus thompsonii, were collected by gillnet from George Lake near Point Du Bois, Manitoba, 36.8 km east of Lac Du Bonnet on 21 September 2000. This constitutes the first confirmed occurrence of the species in George Lake. The only other Manitoba lakes with known populations of Deepwater Sculpin are Lake Athapapuskow and West Hawk Lake. Deepwater Sculpins have also been collected from Reindeer Lake; however, these individuals were collected from the deeper Saskatchewan side of the lake.
