Lake Monona (Dane County, Wisconsin) provides water for cooling the condensers of a coal and gas fired power plant (220 Mw). After a 10C, water is returned to the lake. To assess the distributional responses of fish to the operation of the power plant, the outfall area and two reference areas were electro-fished thirty times over a one-year period. Some fishes found in the reference areas avoided the outfall area, whereas other fishes were at higher concentration in the outfall area relative to the reference sites. Integrated laboratory studies on six species and field results suggest that fishes were distributed within the outfall area according to their different temperature preferenda. (Author)
