The 1985 study is the fifteenth yearly survey of biological
productivity in the Conecuh-Escambia Rivers conducted

 

by the Rivers and

Aquacultures of Auburn University. Prior to these studies on the
stretch of these two rivers between Brewton, Alabama and Escambia Rav in

major changes in water Quality due to paper mill effluents can be
detected from studies of the biota. During periods of low river flow,
plankton, macroinvertebrates, and fish populations were sampled at
stations above and below the discharge from the Container Corporation of
