Title: Delight and Desire Lakes Restoration

Project Year and Number: 1998: 98254-CLO

Other Fiscal Years and Numbers for this Project: 1997: 97254

Principal Investigator (PI): Jim Edmundson, Alaska Department of Fish & Game

Assisting Personnel: Wes Bucher, Mark Dickson

Research Location: Kenai Peninsula

Restoration Category: General Restoration

Injured Resources Addressed: Sockeye Salmon

Abstract: This project is evaluating the quality of the rearing habitat and the feasibility of lake fertilization in Delight and Desire lakes. Limnological and fisheries data were collected during FY 97; FY 98 funds are for data analysis and preparation of a final report. Nutrient enrichment has increased the forage base for rearing sockeye salmon fry in other Alaskan lakes. The expected result of nutrient enrichment is larger, more numerous sockeye smolts and a corresponding increase in adult returns. An enrichment program in Delight and/or Desire lakes would increase lake fertility, which in turn should accelerate the recovery of the currently depressed sockeye salmon runs in these two lakes.
