This is a dataset accompanying the 2017 publication “Assessing the efficacy of corn-based bait containing antimycin-a to control common carp populations using laboratory and pond experiments.” Data are included for the four experiments conducted described in this paper. First, data for a gavage experiment including mortality of carp per tank, fish metrics (lengths and weights), and water quality data (pH, dissolved oxygen, temperature). Second, data are included for the leaching trial including mortality of bluegill and carp, concentrations of antimycin in the tanks, fish metrics, and water quality metrics. Third, data are included for the species-specificity indoor trial. Included in this are mortality and sample...
To evaluate how bigheaded carps move upstream through and around Starved Rock Lock and Dam (SRLD) on the Illinois River, their movements were monitored using acoustic telemetry. This dataset describes the results of this study and was used to compare the residency duration of upstream migrants downstream of SRLD between years, tailwater elevation, and water temperature, and how tailwater elevation and water temperature influenced their timing of arrival downstream of SRLD. Calculation of passage and residency are available in the thesis of Matthew Lubejko (Southern, Illinois University, 2016).
