Peer-Review Article


Density and composition of macroinvertebrate populations were examined prior to and during the migration and spawning of coho and chinook salmon in a small stream in Michigan. Data gathered from bottom samples indicated that disruption of substrate in the experimental area resulted in a significant decrease in the numbers and species of the macroinvertebrate community. This reduction of invertebrates can create a severe stress on native trout populations.
