A Largemouth Bass Model for the Kissimmee Chain of Lakes (KCOL)
Contract No:  67466
Goals and Objectives
 
This project seeks to use historical fisheries data from the KCOL to evaluate how changes in water level regimes and aquatic plant abundance and species composition would influence largemouth bass fisheries. The model includes a wide range of FWC and UF sampling efforts at the KCOL, and should provide resource managers with a tool that can be used to address policy options at this important Florida ecosystem. Patrick O'Rouke is an MS student working on this project, which is funded by the South Florida Water Management District.
