Topic: The effect of flow on size, weight and lipid levels of overwintering channel catfish Ictalurus Punctatus. (Middle Mississippi River).
· River Mods.
Disconnected flood plain, dams, wing dikes Comment by Author: These increase high velocity areas and reduce low velocity areas
Reductions in shallow-low velocity area Comment by Author: This is the main of this topic. Lack of low velocity areas may affect fish survival. Need more energy negatively affect fish survival such as overwintering
Channel catfish. (We are using Channel Catfish as “canary in the coal mine” indicator).
· Lipid, weight, and size.
Impact on fishes. (Overwinter habitat has been lost).
Size, Weight, and Lipids. (Most studies have focused on a single one of these).
The influence of velocity flow on size, weight and lipids.
