Abstract:

This manual was written as a practical guide for the operational use of the white amur fish Ctenopharyngodon idella as a biological control tool for managing submersed aquatic vegetation in situations where it is possible and practical. The instructions are based on extensive evaluation of the white amur in the Large-Scale Operations Management Test LSOMT in Lake Conway, near Orlando, Fla. Although massive amounts of data and subsequent analyses are available in other publications on te LSOMT, the information in this guide is a summary of pertinent results considered appropriate for a use manual. Detailed data and analyses of this very extensive study may be obtained in a series of reports on the project published by the U.S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station through its Aquatic Plant Control Research Program. Originator - provided keywords include Aquatic ecology - Handbooks, manuals, etc., Aquatic plants - Biological control, and White amur Fish.
