Alouette Reservoir has been fertilized since 1999 with the goal of restoring reservoir productivity and enhancing the sport fishery. Dam construction has led to elimination of marine derived nutrients, large water level fluctuations, and an altered hydraulic regime that, collectively, have exacerbated naturally low reservoir productivity. A suite of physical, chemical and biological parameters were measured to examine the ecosystem response to fertilization from April through to October. This report summarizes results of the monitoring program for 2003-2008, with emphasis on the 2008 field season.
