This laboratory, managed by Dr. Steve Mims, contains equipment for quantifying phytoplankton, zooplankton, water quality and contaminants being studied for reservoir ranching of paddle fish in Kentucky. Housed in this lab are a BBE Algae Analyzer for identification, quantification and analysis of algae sampled from fish production study areas, a Hach DRE 2700 for water quality analyses and a DMA Mercury Analyzer to measure mercury concentrations in fish tissues and water samples.
