Open Water Food Web Dynamics in Lake Tahoe
Date: Oct 3, 2012 (Wed)

3:30pm Dr. Dave Beauchamp will share what is known about Lake trout, Kokanee salmon and Mysid shrimp interactions in the open water (pelagic zone) of Lake Tahoe based on past research and will also describe the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service efforts to fill in information gaps related to the Kokanee salmon, Mysid shrimp, and Lake Tahoe zooplankton. He will describe how seasonal changes in environmental conditions, food supply, predation and competition between these species influence a potential niche for Lahontan cutthroat trout.
