Declining populations of the endangered Lost River sucker (Deltistes luxatus) and shortnose sucker (Chasmistes brevirostris) have been attributed to poor water quality in Upper Klamath Lake (U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, 1998). The lake is classified as hypereutrophic, and the resulting water quality associated with this condition is considered a probable cause for the decline of these native fish species and a major limiting factor in their recovery…
