The fish life community of the Ohio River was sampled annually 1968-1970 and 1975-1976 at selected locations. The objective of these investigations was to establish a base line of data which can be used to compare past studies and to identify water quality trends. The samples were collected from lock chambers of navigation structures located throughout the length of the river. In general, the results of these studies documented the existence of a more abundant and desirable fish population than observed during investigations performed in the 1950's. Shifts in species domination and composition were observed in sections of the river and reflected water quality conditions. A total of 181,000 fish weighing 11,569 kilograms, composed of 82 species, was collected in this study.
