Thanks Jen for your contribution to our understanding of the Taunton River.
In the fall of 1995, students from the Biomonitoring/Water Pollution class at Bridgewater State College conducted a study on the Nemasket River, an important Tributary of the Taunton River. The students research included techniques in Electrofishing, Kick-Net Macroinvertebrate Sampling and DNA analysis on American Eel and Crayfish in order to obtain reliable data on the Nemasket. Other ways of obtaining data were by monitoring, PH, Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD), turbidity of the water and specific conductivity.
The following are pictures of work conducted in the field:
