Addition of Nutrients to a Lake Leads to Greatly Increased Catch of Salmon

  • Robin J. LeBrasseur (a1), Carey D. McAllister (a1) and Timothy R. Parsons (a2)

Extract

The Great Central Lake story from British Columbia provides an interesting microcosm which touches on a variety of Man's activities. Other aspects which have not been discussed but were touched upon during the course of the experiment include logging, mining, hydroelectric power, recreational activities, and drinking-water. These ‘resources’ are also part of Man's use of the Great Central Lake system.
