List of Project Objectives:
|Please describe the project methods. Will the product be used in conjunction with existing habitat restoration efforts on the reservoir? Will the product supplement natural brush, rock, or other materials being added to the reservoir?
Fish & Wildlife staff at Cikana State Fish Hatchery regularly survey fish populations and stock the lake with several species. The goal of this project is to improve habitat for the following sportfish species: bass, bluegill, catfish, and crappie.
Once the project has been completed, GIS data will be collected for each of the installation locations and used to produce a map to be displayed inside the Griffy Lake Boathouse.
|Will state fish and wildlife agency staff be directly involved in the project? How so (planning, site selection, participation in installation)? Is there an associated lake or habitat management plan that states the need for structural habitat enhancement?
City of Bloomington Parks and Recreation (BPRD) will coordinate with IDNR: Fish & Wildlife agency staff and Aquatic Control Inc. to determine the best locations for the Mossback Fish Habitat products. Aquatic Control has offered to help train BPRD staff on proper assembly techniques so a volunteer work day can be organized. BPRD will continue applying for LARE grants to supplement funding for lake restoration projects. Additional funding opportunities to support native plant installations along the disturbed shorelines will also be pursued.
