Wildcats News · State Biologist visits Bass Fishing Team

Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Biologist Mr. Tom Timmerman was at BCHS to present to the BCHS Bass Fishing Team Information on Hydrilla

Hydrilla is a very invasive and destructive aquatic plant.

The BCHS team learned the negative impact Hydrilla has on lake ecosystems.

Mr. Timmerman explained the difficulties his department faces in attempting to control the plant on Cave Run Lake.

The BCHS Team was very interested in the topic as Hydrilla can affect the bass and other fish populations.

Chemical treatment is the primary method of control.

The BCHS Team learned that there are steps they can take to help control the spread of the plant.

The BCHS Bass Fishing Program is more than just fishing. The Student-Athletes have to understand the ecosystems and how it affect us and how we affect it.
