Abstract
The exotic rusty crayfish, Orconectes rusticus, has invaded northern Wisconsin watersheds and is causing severe ecological alterations. We investigated the processes of rusty crayfish dispersal and movement within Trout Lake, Vilas County, Wisconsin, using a mark and recapture technique. We examined the effects of crayfish size, gender, and original location on distance traveled.
