The Saint Lawrence River flows in a roughly north-easterly direction, connecting the Great Lakes with the Atlantic Ocean and forming the primary drainage outflow of the Great Lakes Basin. It traverses the Canadian provinces of Quebec and Ontario, and is part of the international boundary Country: Canada, United States.

Sauger are members of the true perch family, Percidae, and are similar to the closely related walleye in both appearance and habits.
