This report documents a study that was conducted to see if there was any harm to the Cameron River fishery after the surrounding area was sprayed with DDT. The results indicate that the spray did not harm fish lower than one foot in the water, and that further study would be needed to see if there was any effect from the fish eating insects killed in the spray.
