    Folks thump Eyes & Perch, and toss them in the cooler. They thump goats, and toss them overboard.
    Actually goats seemed to be the species most effected by VHS in our waters, it was Musky in other waters, and salmonids in others. They may also be less tolerant of rapid temp. changes. Lots of other possibilities. Just plain more of them. Dead Perch are more easily picked up by Gulls.
    I can't recall ever seeing Perch, but have seen at least SOME numbers of Eyes & Catfish, and many dead Steelhead.
