Abstract

This study investigated the status of fish communities in 12 naturally acid Florida lakes. The small, shallow lakes were located in the Ocala National Forest, the Trail Ridge, and panhandle Florida; regions where lakes have low acid neutralizing capacities and are considered sensitive to further acidification from anthropogenic sources. Fifteen species from seven families were captured during mark-recapture sampling. Warmouth (Lepomis gulosus) was the only cosmopolitan species in the study. Bluegill (Lepomis macrochirus) and largemouth bass (Micropterus salmoides), collected from 11 and 10 lakes, respectively, were also widely distributed species. Total fish abundance and biomass were not related to lake pH or total alkalinity. (Document has 202 pages)
