Document Description
Reduce the abundance of the invasive non-native Mysis shrimp in Emerald Bay at Emerald Bay State Park to improve water quality and protect Lake Tahoe's biodiversity. Work will use eco-sounding, remote sensing equipment to locate the position of high density Mysis shrimp patches within the water column to maximize efficiency. Boats will slowly tow a fine mesh net to collect Mysis shrimp. The crew on board will be able to visually locate the Mysis Shrimp and adjust the depth of the trawl to maximize catch.
