dc.description The economic benefit of having the predatory leech used in fishing is outlined. IN 1980, $1.5 million were the estimated sales of this leech in the Minnesota. In 1979, bait leeches became legal commercial export in Minnesota. These leeches are found in North Dakota ponds and sloughs. Until the time of the writing of this article, the viability of a leech harvesting industry in North Dakota hadn't been conducted. 96 questionnaires were mailed out to bait vendors in North Dakota. The study breaks down the results of the survey. Any expenditure for in-state harvested bait should reduce the total need for out-of-state purchases by wholesale and retail vendors. The in-state production of bait leech in North Dakota might generate some income for the state.
