Effects of planktivorous and benthivorous fish on organisms and water chemistry in eutrophic lakes

  title={Effects of planktivorous and benthivorous fish on organisms and water chemistry in eutrophic lakes},
  author={Gunnar Andersson and Hans Berggren and Gertrud Cronberg and Curt Gelin},
The effects of planktivorous and benthivorous fish on benthic fauna, zooplankton, phytoplankton and water chemistry were studied experimentally in two eutrophic Swedish lakes using cylindrical enclosures. In enclosures in both lakes, dense fish populations resulted in low numbers of benthic fauna and planktonic cladocerans, high concentration of chlorophyll, blooms of blue-green, algae, high pH and low transparency. In the soft-water Lake Trummen, total phosporus increased in the enclosure with… CONTINUE READING
