Lake Restoration by Fish Removal: Short- and Long-Term Effects in 36 Danish Lakes

  title={Lake Restoration by Fish Removal: Short- and Long-Term Effects in 36 Danish Lakes},
  author={Martin S\ondergaard and Lone Liboriussen and Asger Roer Pedersen and Erik Jeppesen},
During the past 10–15 years removal of plankti- and benthivorous fish (mainly roach, Rutilus rutilus, and bream, Abramis brama) has commonly been used as a method to improve the ecological quality of Danish lakes. Here, we examine the general and long-term effects obtained after the removal of 41–1360 kg fish ha−1 in 36 mainly shallow and eutrophic lakes. In lakes in which less than 200 kg fish ha−1 were removed within a 3-year period only minor effects were observed, but at higher removal… CONTINUE READING
