Assess Responses of Lahontan Cutthroat Trout Prey Items to Changing Hydrological Regimes and Salinity in Walker Lake, Nevada: The objective is to fund a study to assess responses of Lahontan cutthroat trout prey items to changing hydrological regimes and salinity in Walker Lake, Nevada. These prey items include tui chub, benthic macroinvertebrates, and zooplankton. In addition, other lakewide responses to changing salinity may affect the food web and LCT productivity therefore seasonal abundance and distribution of the macrophytes will need assessment. Specific objectives for this study are: implementation of a limnological monitoring program with a primary focus on zooplankton dynamics; assessment of benthic macroinvertebrates and implementation of a long-term monitoring program; implementation of an extensive hydroacoustic survey of the Walker lake tui-chub population including estimates of both population size and inter-annual variability in recruitment; and production of a detailed map of the current distribution of macrophytes. Current and historic zooplankton sampling has only been sufficient to document large changes in species abundance. For this study, we expect that sampling would be intense enough to cover the entire lake and detect a 25% change in mean abundance of all species encountered with 90% certainty. Benthic sampling will need to assess changes in spatial, seasonal, and year-to-year variation for the macroinvertebrate community throughout the lake. The entity selected will produce quarterly and annual reports for the duration of the study and publish the results in a peer-reviewed journal.
