Short Term Effects of the Toledo Bend Project on Sabine Lake, Louisiana

Hydrological and biological parameters are presented for Sabine Lake, Louisiana, before and after the completion of Toledo Bend Reservoir. Salinity and temperature regiments, species composition, and abundance are presented for June 1967 through May 1969. Selected species are compared to decreasing and increasing reservoir discharges. Occurrence and abundance of marine animals are related to altered salinity levels demonstrating possible effects on the total marine animal community.
