Description

A memorandum from the Florida Game and Fresh Water Fish Commission to the Florida Air and Water Pollution Control Commission. This memo discusses the history of pollution in the lakes at the headwaters of the Ocklawaha River basin, specifically Lake Dora, Lake Eustis, Lake Harris, Little Lake Harris, Lake Griffin, and Lake Apopka. The memo identifies the three sources of pollution into these lakes as citrus processing, sewage treatment outfall, and farm waste discharge. The memo outlines the monetary values of the sportfishing and commercial fishing industry on the lakes, as well as detailing the historical change in the makeup of fish populations. The memo also explores the increase in fish kill frequency in these lakes, before ending with a request to the commission for an increase in outreach efforts regarding water pollution.
