Research output: Book/Report/Conference proceedingTechnical report

Abstract

For the 2017 field season, The Emiquon Preserve continues to maintain a healthy population of fish with a continual dominance of native fish. Native submersed aquatic vegetation (SAV) is still abundant even though non-nati ve SAV exceeds the established goal. There is little indication currently that non-native species are becoming dominant or degrading environmental conditions. Of 19 relevant Key Ecological Attributes (KEA), 15 were evaluated and four were not measured. Of the 15 KEA’s measured, ten goals were met and five were not met in 2017 through standardized monitoring of the fish and aquatic vegetation communities.
