Abstract: The Morrow Lake hydroelectric project is a new facility which is scheduled to become operational in August 1985. A study has been developed consisting of two main parts: Potential change in condition, numbers and species of fish being transported to downstream regions of the Kalamazoo River from Morrow Dam due to the powerhouse construction and change of dam operation and; the fate and survivorship of fishes being entrained into the turbines. To develop a baseline condition of species and number of fishes presently being transported over the dam and in Morrow Pond, fish sampling was begun in the spring and progressed through the Fall of 1984. Once the powerhouse becomes operational, sieve nets will be placed at the exit of the turbine draft tubes.
