Seeking A Solution

Plans are continuing to conduct a “chemical renovation” of Lake Yankton, during which the fish currently in the lake would be poisoned and the lake would be restocked. The 2011 flooding caused invasive fish species to move into the lake water and proliferate.

Plans are slowly progressing on a solution to the growth in invasive fish species in Lake Yankton.

However, Nebraska Game & Parks Commission fisheries biologist Jeff Schuckman said there is a long way to go before tackling the proposed “chemical renovation,” a process that involves partial draining the lake and introducing a chemical meant to kill off the fish in the lake.
