Analysis of fish age structure and growth in the Illinois River by Michael A Smith( )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Otoliths and other calcified structures have been used to age and determine growth rates of fish from a variety of habitats. Sagittal otoliths were removed from fishes representing five species from La Grange Pool of the Illinois River for age determination. Species collected included largemouth bass (Micropterus salmoldes), black crappie (Pomoxis nigromaculatus), bluegill (Lepomis macrochirus), white bass (Morone chrysops), and freshwater drum (Aplodinotus grunniens). Common univariate techniques were used to analyze the significance of spatial and temporal variation in growth and back-calculated mean length-at-age for all five species
Multiyear synthesis of limnological data from 1993 to 2001 for the Long Term Resource Monitoring Program( )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report presents a broad overview of spatial and temporal variation in the water quality of the Upper Mississippi River System (UMRS). The Long Term Resource Monitoring Program (LTRMP) provides a systemic perspective through the collection and analysis of monitoring data from six study reaches representing the upper, lower, and open river reaches of the UMRS: Upper Mississippi River Pools 4, 8, 13, and 26 and Open River [near Cape Girardeau, Missouri]; and Illinois River. La Grange Pool. This report presents data from 1993 to 2001 (or 2002 when available) and focuses on spring and summer conditions. Water quality constituents (e.g., turbidity, suspended solids, chlorophyll, nutrients, and dissolved oxygen) varied among study reaches, aquatic area (e.g., main channel, contiguous backwaters, etc.) and seasons. For example, turbidity and suspended solids varied substantially among pools. Turbidity and suspended solids were much lower in lower Pool 4 than in upper Pool 4 because of the trapping of sediments by Lake Pepin, but increased in each of the study reaches from Pool 4 to Open River. Chlorophyll a and nutrient concentrations often differed between the main channel and contiguous backwater areas (hereafter referred to as backwaters). Summer chlorophyll a concentrations were generally higher in backwaters than in the main channel, and summer nitrate + nitrite (NOx) concentrations were generally lower in backwaters than in the main channel. Seasonal patterns were evident in chlorophyll a, nutrient, and dissolved oxygen concentrations. Main channel soluble reactive phosphorus concentrations peaked in September and exhibited minima in April and May. In contrast, main channel and backwater NOx concentrations exhibited minima in fall when soluble reactive phosphorus concentrations are at their maximum. Seasonal chlorophyll a concentrations in main channels and backwaters show peaks in late summer and fall, with minima in winter and early summer. Seasonal dissolved oxygen patterns differed slightly among the northern (Pools 4, 8, and 13) and southern (Pool 26, Open River, La Grange Pool) study reaches. In the northern study reaches, dissolved oxygen concentrations are generally highest in spring, lowest in summer and winter, and intermediate in fall. In the southern study reaches, dissolved oxygen concentrations are highest in winter, lowest in summer, and intermediate in spring and fall. Spatial patterns within study reaches caused by tributary inputs were shown by the spatial patterns in specific conductivity. Of the six LTRMP study reaches, Pools 4, 8, and 26 showed clear spatial patterns in conductivity related to tributary input in some years whereas Pool 13, Open River, and La Grange Pool did not
Multiyear synthesis of the macroinvertebrate component from 1992 to 2002 for the Long Term Resource Monitoring Program by Jennifer S Sauer( )

4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1992, macroinvertebrate sampling was begun in Pools 4, 8, 13, and 26; the Open River Reach of the Mississippi River; and La Grange Pool of the Illinois River as part of the Long Term Resource Monitoring Program. Long-term monitoring is needed to detect population trends and local changes in aquatic ecosystems. We selected mayflies (Ephemeroptera), fingernail clams (Pisidiidae), and the exotic Corbicula species for monitoring. Midges (Chironomidae) were added to the sampling design in 1993 and zebra mussels (Dreissena Polymorpha) were added in 1995. Sampling was based on a stratified random design and conducted at approximately 125 sites per study area. Mean densities of taxa were weighted by strata for extrapolation. The poolwide estimated mean densities of mayflies, fingernail clams, and midges were all within the range of variation observed historically. Over the last 11 years of sampling, the northern study areas supported the highest densities of the target organisms

Multiyear synthesis of the aquatic vegetation component from 1991 to 2002 for the Long Term Resource Monitoring Program by Yao Yin( )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aquatic vegetation data were collected in the Upper Mississippi River System (UMRS) under the Long Term Resource Monitoring Program (LTRMP). From 1991 to 2002, five reaches were surveyed every year (key pools), and another five reaches were surveyed once (outpools). The study design changed from a protocol involving sampling along transects (1991-2000) to a protocol incorporating stratified random sampling (1998-2002) with concurrent sampling under both protocols in 1998-2000. The frequency of occurrence of plants revealed no synchronous trends among three key pools (Pools 4, 8, and 13) supporting sizable submerged aquatic vegetation beds. Submersed aquatic vegetation in upper Pool 4 declined steadily between 1991 and 2002. Submersed aquatic vegetation in lower Pool 4 declined between 1991 and 1996 and thereafter recovered moderately. Submersed aquatic vegetation in Pool 8 increased between 1991 and 1999, which probably was a recovery process from a reported sudden collapse after the 1987-1989 drought. Submersed aquatic vegetation in Pool 13 demonstrated a high degree of stability during the period of monitoring despite drastic fluctuations between spring and summer sampling in some years. Water turbidity and water level fluctuations were strongly correlated with the longitudinal pattern of submersed aquatic vegetation distribution in the UMRS. Pools with clearer water and less fluctuating water levels supported more submersed aquatic vegetation. The LTRMP key pools represented a wide spectrum of UMRS habitats. The habitat rehabilitation and enhancement program (HREP) at Stoddard Bay in Pool 8 effectively stimulated colonization by aquatic vegetation
Effect of a recently completed habitat rehabilitation and enhancement project on fish abundances in La Grange Pool of the Illinois River using Long Term Resource Monitoring Program data( )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Long Term Resource Monitoring Program (LTRMP) fish component monitors fish communities to test for changes in abundances and species composition in six regional trend areas of the Upper Mississippi River System. Using these data, we evaluated the ability of the LTRMP to detect changes in the fish community as a consequence of a habitat-enhancement project in La Grange Pool of the Illinois River. In 1996, initial phases of the Chautauqua National Wildlife Refuge Habitat Rehabilitation and Enhancement Project (HREP) south cell construction were completed with the goal of improving fish habitat in the pool. That year, an estimated 46 million fish representing 34 species were produced and discharged from the south cell of Lake Chautauqua. Whereas this response may indicate that the south cell serves as a spawning and nursery area for many fish species, no studies have tested for recruitment to the river fish community. We used geographic information system coverage at three spatial scales in the main-channel and side-channel strata to illustrate potential fish-community responses. At these spatial scales (local 1 river mile [RM], regional ~10 RMs, and pool wide 80 RMs), we assessed fish catch-per-unit-effort (CPUE) data collected from mini-fyke net and day electrofishing among pre- (1993 1995) and post-HREP (1996 2005) periods of the Chautauqua National Wildlife Refuge HREP. Analysis of Similarity results demonstrated no significant differences among periods in fish CPUE (P> 0.05). Our results may indicate that (1) the LTRMP sampling design lacked sufficient statistical power to detect effects of the HREP, (2) the LTRMP sampling design lacked the spatial and temporal resolution to detect effects, (3) the Lake Chautauqua HREP has not been established long enough to detect long-term trends in fish production, or (4) the HREP had no effect on fish recruitment to the Illinois River
