Native plants key to Harris Chain productivity

The recent Bassmaster Southern Open tournament results showed that bass fishing on the Harris Chain of Lakes in Florida continues to shine, and it should. Florida communities and natural resource agencies have spent a lot of time and money improving the water and wildlife habitats.

Cleaning up the water has yin-yang consequences. When nutrient pollution is reduced, it lowers algae blooms and clears up the water. When the water clears, aquatic plants grow more. If you add an exotic plant to this mix, the normal balance is severely one-sided, in favor of exotic plants.
