interesting facts
Interesting Facts
  • Paint Creek is part of a State Park with many trails and caves
  • If the Creek was 4 miles longer it would be a river
  • Has bass, carp, catfish, sunfish, and many small animals like frogs and rabbits.

A watershed is an area of land that forms the drainage system for a stream, lake or river.

habitat s effect on the diversity of fish
Habitat’s Effect on the Diversity of Fish

Hypothesis: By having a good habitat, the diversity of fish will increase and the riparian zone can act as a filter for the pollutants.

There are lots of different things that can affect the habitat:

  • Agriculture
    • Run-off carries fertilizer
    • Stream is polluted with excess nutrients
  • Forest
  • Urban
    • Sediment/Siltation(sand, silt, clay)
    • Toxic Substances (heavy metals, oil and petroleum products)

Hypothesis

  • The more urban land use around a stream, the lower the fish diversity score.
  • Helps show how healthy a stream is.

There are a lot of factors that play a role in the quality of the substrate, like:

  • Food Supply
  • Shelter
  • Reproduction

Substrate vs. ICI

A substrate is the rocky bottom of a stream.

  • Hypothesis
  • Based on my information, as the quality of the substrate in the Upper Paint Watershed decreases, so does the macro-invertebrate community.
final conclusions best practices
Final Conclusions Best Practices
  • The better the habitat, the more diversity of fish
  • Urban runoff results in areas with limited percolation. This runoff pollutes local streams and kills off the fish living there
  • A healthy substrate has food supply, shelter, and areas for reproduction for macro-invertebrates and fish
  • Keep plants in your yard to prevent erosion
  • Don’t litter or pollute—everything flows to the streams in some way
  • Farmers should leave a 10 meter area by the stream unplowed to prevent fertilizers from entering the stream

Remember: we get our resources from these streams, so let’s keep them clean!
