Abstract : A Large-Scale Operations Management Test was initiated in 1976 at Lake Conway, Florida, to evaluate the use of the white amur fish as an operational method for the control of excessive aquatic plant growth. Since the stocking of Lake Conway with white amur in September 1977, sampling operations have indicated a definite reduction of aquatic plant populations due to the fish's presence. What could be determined from these observations was a correlation between fish movement within the lake system and the decline of the plants as a function of time. The examination of this problem indicated that radiotracking fish movements at comparible time intervals to the other data-collection efforts would provide the needed information.
