: The fish inventories that provided data to our study were led by the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes & Energy (EGLE), as part of routine bioassessments around the state of Michigan, USA. EGLE has provided the following protocol adhered to by their aquatic biologists using the Procedure 51 bioassessment: “All collected fish should be placed immediately in water filled tubs. Care should be taken to keep fish alive by replenishing the holding tub water and processing the fish as quickly as possible. Tubs may be placed in the stream shocking unit or along the stream banks. A livebox may also be placed directly in the stream to hold collected fish. Portable battery operated aerators may also be used.”
