Description

A press release from the Florida Game and Freshwater Fish Commission announcing plans to perform a seining operation in Lake Griffin in Lake County, Florida, as a follow-up to evaluate earlier rough removal programs. Gizzard shad are the main target of rough fish removal programs. Shad removal improves water quality through the removal of nutrients, which promote excessive algae growth. It may also improve quality by reducing water turbidity and preventing sediment suspension.
