TVA spring sport fish survey to begin

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — The Tennessee Valley Authority says its annual spring sport fish survey is starting this week.

TVA biologists conduct the survey in order to assess the overall health of species such as crappie and black bass on nine TVA reservoirs in Alabama and Tennessee.

The biologists record the abundance, distribution, age, relative weight and general health of sport fish found in the reservoirs. The surveys are used by the TVA and shared with state agencies to protect and improve sport fishing.

The surveys start Tuesday on Wilson Reservoir near Muscle Shoals, Ala., and continue through May 1 on Douglas Reservoir near Knoxville.

Other reservoirs to be sampled are Nickajack, Chickamauga, Guntersville, Wheeler, Pickwick, Watts Bar and Fort Loudoun.

The public is invited to observe.
