Note(s): Few ecological studies have been published about artificial canals in Florida, but it is generally agreed that most Florida canals have poor flushing rates that can produce eutrophic conditions. Eutrophication can be greatly accelerated by increased biological oxygen demand from domestic and industrial runoff, which can result in a paucity of desirable aquatic life (Barada and Partington 1972). The purpose of this study is to obtain a generalized idea of conditions in the Link Port canal. This investigation is by no means complete but it is hoped that it may stimulate more detailed studies.
