Summary/Recommendations/Objectives:

This
report presents the results of the fisheries and limnological studies conducted
on West Point Lake from October 1979 through September 1980. It is a continuation
of the studies designed to document changes in the physical, chemical and
biological characteristics of a new impoundment (West Point Lake) over a
ten-year period. Study objectives were designed to emphasize detection of those

factors
contributing to an expected decline in sport fishing success

Additionally,
under a separate contract with the U.S. Army Corps of

Engineers,
Mobile District, the Department of Fisheries and Allied

Aquacultures, Auburn University, agreed to gather
certain chemical data should anaerobic conditions
develop in West Point Lake during the late summer of 1980.
