Description

A report detailing Thomas L. Wellborn, Jr.'s visit to Lake Apopka, Florida in June 1963. Wellborn, a biologist with the Bureau of Sport Fisheries and Wildlife of the Fish and Wildlife Service, an agency of the U.S. Department of the Interior, visited Lake Apopka to examine fish for signs of disease. Though some fish parasites were identified, Wellborn found no evidence of infectious diseases among the moribund fish in Lake Apopka. Samples were taken and sent to be examined for viral disease. Wellborn details his observations of planes spraying pesticides into Lake Apopka on three separate mornings.
