A telemetry study on the movement of burbot on Moyie Lake was run between fall 2013 and fall 2017. Sonic tags (Vemco depth sensor V13 tags which will be referred to by serial number) were applied to 30 fish (15 fish in fall 2013 and 15 in fall 2014). Five receivers were placed in the north basin, 1 receiver on the channel between basins, and two receivers in the south basin.
