F19 Kootenay Lake nutrient restoration
This project includes the coordination, oversight, and implementation of nutrient additions to the North Arm of Kootenay Lake, and the associated monitoring and reporting. Nutrient additions (nitrogen and phosphorus in the form of liquid agricultural grade fertilizer) support phytoplankton populations that are suitable for the production of Daphnia, a main food source for Kokanee.
