Connection between Phoslock treatment and carp die off?

A pilot project was launched this Spring in the Lake Simcoe Southern Basin (costing $250K) to experiment with a new water treatment solution called Phoslock which is said to remove phosphorus in the lake. This is the first instance of this being added to the water (this Spring) and to my recollection, this is the first year I have ever seen such a mass die-off of the carp. The Phoslock affects the lake bottom adding a layer of material that is said to be harmless to fish, I believe Carp are bottom feeders, is it possible that there is a connection?

Hi everyone,

Interesting blog. The phoslock pilot project hasn't actually been administered yet folks. I'm not a scientist or anything... I just don't think you can make a connection when the phoslock hasn't been applied yet. The Post on carp die off from Kids for Turtles is pretty consistent with the information I have and that you can see on our facebook page. Lake Simcoe Conservation Foundation, we will be updating this page as information comes available.

I was sailing on Friday though and the carp in Cook's Bay really were depressing. Let's hope it won't last too long.

Kimberley
PS Online forums like this are fascinating to me... unfortunately I'm unable to participate consistently. Great to see online connections like this though.

JUST IN! First applications of PHOSLOCK occured this week not on the lake but at a pond in Braford and a stormwater pond in Newmarket according to the Era Banner. Google their website for an article or go to www.yorkregion.com/News/Newmarket/article/78859

Sorry to burst your bubble guys but it seems that there was no government cover up and no hidden conspiracy at least with Phoslock! The Environmental Commissioner of Ontario Gord Miller (the big environmental government watchdog himself)was in attendance thursday to watch the demonstration.

If you want information on whats been done I suggest calling the LSRCA and ask to talk to a Mike Walters, he was interviewed by the Era Banner and talked about the project.

I did and it appears the LSRCA and MOE have been conducting tests over the last 6 months to ensure Phoslock is safe for use in Ontario waters.

Another source of information is the Phoslock web site where I got some info on this product as well. Its used all over the world especially in some fish and shrimp farms and even to treat drinking water reservoirs in Austalia. I would assume its pretty safe if people are exposed to it and you can eat the fish out of the ponds were it has been used.

So breath easier all! Nothing fishy and from the sounds of it this may help the fishery not hurt it. I suggest that if your still don't believe me you take the time to really investigate it yourself.
