Contents Notes
Summer stratification in small mountain trout-fishery lakes restricts trout habitat to the thin layer of surface water. As atmospheric temperatures increase during later summer months, the epilimnion waters reach temperatures intolerable for trout. A technique of managing trout-fishery lakes, through introduction of compressed air, was studied at Lake Roberts in southern New Mexico during the summer of 1969. Research was conducted to determine the feasibility of induced aeration to control nutrient stratification and dissipation of high-bottom concentrations of hydrogen sulfide. The oxygenation efficiency of the induced aeration system was evaluated, and further research required for optimum development of the systems as management tools for trout-fishery lakes is discussed.
