Walleye

Minnesota designated the walleye (Stizostedion vitreum) as the official state fish in 1965. Walleyes are a popular game fish found throughout Minnesota's lakes and rivers.

Walleyes are most at home in the large, clear, cool lakes of Minnesota’s northern forests. Their eyes are sensitive to light, so they go to deep, dark waters during the day and move to shallow areas at night. Minnesota’s record walleye weighed 17 pounds, 8 ounces.
