High Phosphate Fertilizer Applied to Arkansas Lakes
Arkansas Game & Fish Commission will apply a granular fertilizer to Harris Brake, Overcup and Cargile lakes.

Biologists plan to apply the granular fertilizer that is high in phosphate, which helps boost the production of phytoplankton. Phytoplankton is a microscopic plant that is the foundation of the food web in aquatic systems. It is what gives most ponds and lakes the green color during the spring and early summer months.

Adding nutrients to the water enhances the phytoplankton bloom and results in decreased water clarity. This hinders the growth of nuisance algae and aquatic plants. It also increases the production of microscopic organisms called zooplankton, which larval fish (fish that just hatched), such as bass and crappie, need to feed on to increase their growth during their early life stages.

Fertilization increases the overall productivity of the water body by stimulating the food web, which eventually produces more food for sport fish such as largemouth bass, crappie, catfish and sunfish.

The Minnehaha Creek Watershed District said Wednesday it found zebra mussels – a particularly destructive non-native mollusk – present at most testing sites across the lake.
