Project Description: A general description of the ¿who, what, when, where and how¿ for the project. St Croix Basin Biologist and tech will assist the City of Shell Lake's contractor (St Croix Tribal biologist Tony Havranek) to collect littoral invert samples in north and south basins. We will also collect a deep benthic grab sample using an eckman grab sampler from pelagic areas. a vertical tow plankton net will also be conducted to characterize suspended invertebrates in the pelagic zone.
