Fish, however, are an integral component of lake and reservoir ecosystems. In addition to being a desired resource for lake users, they play important roles in energy flows, nutrient cycling, and maintaining community balance. The physical, chemical, and biological characteristics of a lake or reservoir are major determinants of the types, number, and size of fish available for harvest. At the same time, fisheries management affects not only fish and the quality of fishing but also the ecosystem as a whole. The manual is written to provide water quality managers with a better understanding of the concepts and techniques of fisheries management as well as the role of fish in the lake ecosystem and the potential use of fish management as one method for improving and maintaining water quality.
