  1. Interesting and timely. So many fishermen blame the chemicals on the poor fishing. I’m not a limnologist but very interested in the subject, and believe it might be destruction of habitat for the bottom of the food chain that may be affecting fish populations.

  2. Interesting and timely. So many fishermen blame the chemicals on the poor fishing. I’m not a limnologist but very interested in the subject(Robert Wetzel’s book), and believe it might be destruction of the habitat for the bottom of the food chain, i.e. killing the aquatic plants, that may be affecting fish populations.

    1. 2, 4 D compounds have a long history of toxicity to aquatic macro-invertebrates. These responses differ greatly between the different formulations of the chemical that are used. This should be a major component of your research.
      PS
      Phosphorus concentration should be viewed as an indicator of eutrophication not as the cause.

  3. 2,4 D compounds have a long history of toxicity to aquatic macro invertebrates. Many of the results are conflicting and I suspect they are due to the carrier used I the formulation being studied. This should be a major component of your research.
