I suggest people not to purposely kill lamprey as they do not cause permanent harm to fish (like sea lamprey). We have three lamprey species in Manitoba, Only Silver and Chestnut parasitize fish - and only in their short breeding cycle. Chestnut Lamprey are fairly rare, so it would be really unfortunate if they were killed.
