This paper presents and discusses studies of larval fish distribution near a large power plant on western Lake Erie using methods that attempt to account for the confounding effect of environmental variation on technique effectiveness. Distributions in the coastal zone were sampled with daytime and nighttime tows of 1-m plankton nets. Density and mortality were also sampled in the cooling system of the Monroe Power Plant. Certain species of larvae seemed to be more vulnerable to entrainment than others: gizzard shad were more vulnerable than yellow perch, white bass, rainbow smelt, shiners (Notropis) carp and goldfish.
