Diel Patterns of Behavior and Habitat Utilization 70 of Cisco (Coregonus
artedii) in Two Wisconsin Lakes 
Lars G. Rudstam and Todd W. Trapp 
In the examination of diel patterns of behavior and habitat utilization of
cisco, it was discovered that both differed between lakes and among age groups.
While no diel vertical migration was observed, it was noted that smaller
fish in one lake moved toward the shore during dawn and offshore during dusk.
It was further discovered that cisco probably fed both day and night with
only a small difference in diet between younger and older fish.
