Abstract

Due to the inconveniences associated with under ice population studies, most aquatic population studies are made during the spring, summer, and fall seasons. Like most lakes little is known about the fall and winter popu-lations of the Utah Lake invertebrates. The purpose of this study is to classify, determine quantitative fall and winter population fluctuations, and obtain life history and ecological information of the macro-invertebrates at . Lincoln Beach, Utah Lake. This lake is the largest, natural occurring body of fresh water in the state and has a high potential for the production of gamefish and water-fowl. As Smart (1960) points out, an estimate of the amount of bottom fauna is the most important single stand-ard for evaluating the potential of a lake to produce fish. It is also an important consideration in the evaluation of waterfowl habitats (Barnett, 1964).
