    Fishers are the only animals which are able to kill porcupines without being hurt. They are not named fishers because they catch fish. Fishers do not steal bait from traps as some people have thought. Fishers receive their name from an old word for fur. Fishers are also called pekans or...

  • Fisher. Perkins, R. Marlin // Guide to Animal Tracks;1958, p44 

    The fisher is similar in structure to the martin but is larger, more powerful, and a darker color. The fur is long and durable. The average adult is about three feet in length and weighs from 8 to 12 pounds. The fisher prefers to be near a stream, lake or swamp although he is by no means so...

    Fisher (Martes pennanti) populations may respond numerically to fluctuating hare populations, although uncertainty remains about this contention. We analyzed livetrapping data from Ontario (448,654 trap nights) that contained trend information for fishers, lagomorphs (snowshoe hares [Lepus...

    Translocations are frequently used to restore extirpated carnivore populations. Understanding the factors that influence translocation success is important because carnivore translocations can be time consuming, expensive, and controversial. Using population viability software, we modeled...

    Obtaining accurate estimates of fisher (Martes pennanti) population abundance is challenging to resource management agencies given the large home ranges and low densities at which fisher occur. Current methods for estimating population abundance are expensive in terms of equipment required and...
