Abstract: Water quality is a concern in channels of the Les Cheneaux Islands, but little is known about phytoplankton communities, which form the base of the pelagic food web.
This report provides a basis for understanding primary producer responses to nutrient loading and Eurasian watermilfoil (Myriophyllum spicatum) management efforts in the waterways of the Les Cheneaux Islands.
