Abstract : A symposium was held in Gainesville on March 7-9, 1994, to discuss the effects of stocking grass carp for aquatic plant control. The purpose of the workshop was to provide information related to the concern for habitat protection and the suitability of using grass carp for aquatic plant control in large lakes. Individual lake studies, long-term impacts, low stocking rates, and grass carp recapture methods were presented in a context of using grass carp in a manner that prevents eradication of submersed aquatic plants. In addition, public perception and questions for experts were presented during panel discussions. -BKA
