Title:Overfishing in a Small Artificial Lake: Onized Lake Near Alton, Illinois
Author(s):Bennett, George William
Subject(s):Fishing
Artificial Lake
Illinois
Abstract:The only case of overfishing ever observed in Illinois by Natural History Survey aquatic biologists occurred under conditions favorable for study, 1938-1941. Evidence of overfishing was available from well-kept records of hook-and-line catches for two complete fishing seasons and parts of two others, and from sample catches made with test hoopnets in 1938 and 1940. In 1941 the lake was treated with a plant alkaloid to kill the fish, and a careful census of the fish population was made.
