The research described in the document represents one component of Phase II of the Eastern Lake Survey (ELS-II), a part of the National Surface Water Survey (NSWS). Surveys of fish community status were conducted in summer 1987 in 49 lakes in ELS Subregion 2B, the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Subregion 2B was selected because of its (1) high proportion of acidic and low-pH lakes, (20 relative lack of existin data on fish communities in lakes, and (3) diverse geological and hydrological conditions allowing optimal evaluation of the association between lake characteristics and fish community status. A companion study dealing with regional patterns in fish mercury content in Subregion 2B was conducted concurrently; results from the study will be presented in a subsequent report.
