A survey was made on the Is Chain of Lakes- Bellalre, Torch, Skegemog and Elk for the purpose of establishing a base line study of the nutrients flowing into the lakes. Algal samples were taken within a week after the ice had moved out of the lakes. To do this two small boats went along the shorelines with nets and either netted the algae or scraped it from rocks where ever it was found in what appeared to be growth areas. The purpose of the algae samples was to Indicate nutrient sources.
