We've looked and we can't find anything other than similar documents ewest provided above.
Milford percid gurus want to try it based on the problems that seem to be found common in the post hatch from ribbons on that combo.
There's something common to the fry dying off at 5-20 day post hatch.
The thought is having proper conditions to support the fry to get them to a larger size for study is target 1. and possibly allow continued growth.
It may be a short experiment Bill.

I suspect that the genetics of the two species are too different for hybridizing yellow perch and walleye. IMO a "good" or high percentage of genetic compatibility of the parents has to be present for the hybrid develop successfully. Just one example - structure of the eggs of the two species are quite different. YP lay eggs embedded in a hollow gelatinous ribbon and WE scatter single eggs. Taxonomists consider these two species as belonging to different genera. To my weak genetic background of knowledge, most successful hybrids are produced from species within the same genus. Crossing a YP with a WE is like crossing a LMB and BG. Incompatibility of the YP and WE is evidenced by the difficulty during hatching and short life span of the fry. I am surprised the eggs even reach hatching stage.
