Abstract : The Long Term Resource Monitoring Program (LTRMP) completed 2,653 collections of fishes from stratified random and permanently fixed sampling locations in six study reaches of the Upper Mississippi River System during 1991. Collection methods included day and night electrofishing, hoop netting, fyke netting (two net sizes), gill netting, seining, and trawling in select aquatic area classes. The six LTRMP study reaches are Pools 4 (excluding lake Pepin), 8, 13, and 26 of the Upper Mississippi River, an uninpounded reach of tue Mississippi River near Cape Girardeau, Missouri and the La Grange Pool of the Illinois River. A total of 61-79 fish species were detected in each study reach.
