This bibliography has been prepared to consolidate and update references pertaining to muskellunge (Esox masquinongy). It builds of previous work completed by Buss (1960), Haase (1976), Porter (1977), Crossman and Goodchild (1978), Hess and Heartwell(1978), Zorn (1982) and Zack (1987). Cited articles originate from a variety of different sources including books, scientific journals, government publications, conference/workshop proceedings, post-graduate thesis and dissertations, and outdoor magazines.
An effort has been made to categorize the topic of individual references although, in a few instances, the same reference may be cited under more than one category. Care was taken to ensure that only citations about muskellunge or pertaining directly to muskellunge management were included in this undertaking. In total, almost 2,600 publications, pertaining to the biology, ecology and management of muskellunge, are cited.
