Summary/Recommendations/Objectives:

The present report covers the
period October 1977 through

September 1978 and represents a
continuation of the West Point Reservoir

fisheries and limnologica1
investigations. This study emphasizes the

biological and limnological
inter-relationships of a new impoundment.

West Point reservoir is on the
Chattahoochee River and forms an impoundment

of 10,457 hectares. Study
objectives include documenting changes in the physical,

chemical and biological characteristics
of the reservoir over a 10-year

period with emphasis on detection
of those factors contributing to the

expected decline in
sport fishing success.
