Factors Influencing Stream Fish Recovery Following a Large-Scale Disturbance

  title={Factors Influencing Stream Fish Recovery Following a Large-Scale Disturbance},
  author={W ILLIAM and E. ENSIGN},
  • Published 1999
-We examined fish distribution and abundance in erosional habitat units in South Fork Roanoke River, Virginia, following a fish kill by using a reachwide sampling approach for 3 species and a representative-reach sampling approach for 10 species. Qualitative (presence-absence) and quantitative (relative abundance) estimates of distribution and abundance provided consistent measures of fish recovery for 2 of 3 species at the reachwide scale and 8 of 10 species at the representative-reach scale… CONTINUE READING
