Westland

Kootenay Lake Conference

Description

In response to sharp declines in fish populations, WestLand convened this conference in Nelson.  Two generations of fishery managers report on low nutrient levels in the lake and the outcome of planting fresh water shrimp in the lake in 1949.  The idea of lake fertilization is discussed along with the connection between fish declines and recent dam-building.
