Replicate ponds were stocked with grass carp in May 1982 and a fence exclosure placed in each pond to assess the effects of this herbivorous fish on the cattail community. Stocking rate of grass carp four individuals oer pond each membership 18-23 cm in total length. In August 1983 the cattail community was assessed by use of a wire quadrat and visual observations both within and outside of the exclosures. Grass carp reduce cattail abundance.
