Weed Harvester Collects Hundreds of Dead Carp
Bow fishing, as opposed to an environmental fish kill, is behind the recent culling of hundreds of carp in Paddock Lake, administrator Tim Popanda.

Flooding in July led to a rush of runoff into the lake, which, in turn, reduced oxygen levels.  This can lead to a natural fish kill, and some carp perished as a result. However, Popanda said examination of recently found dead carp revealed the majority had holes caused by bow-fishing arrows; which is perfectly legal.

According to information from the state Department of Natural Resources, an abundance of carp in a lake can lead to reduced water quality and an increase in algae blooms, which diminish the amount of light needed for native vegetation to survive.

Chesapeake Bay Underwater Grasses Continue to Rebound - Underwater grasses continue to rebound across the Chesapeake Bay, Maryland and Virginia scientists reported Thursday, with aerial surveys showing a 27 percent expansion last year. Problematic as that may be for boaters, it's encouraging ecologically, as the grasses provide vital habitat for blue crabs and fish, while also helping to clean up the water.
