Abstract : This report presents the results of aquatic ecology investigations conducted at RMA from fall 1985 through spring 1988. The major objectives of the investigation were to: (1) characterize the aquatic resources of RMA, particularly the South Lakes; and (2) compare the water quality and aquatic biota of RMA lakes with an offsite lake. The report is divided into the following sections: (1) methods-sampling procedures, tissue analyses; (2) characterization of South Lakes aquatic environments-water quality, plankton, fish; (3) comparison with McKay Lake in Northwestern Adams County-water quality, aquatic species; (4) history of fisheries management at RMA; and (5) summary and recommendations.
