Description The study aims to develop a predictive tool for freshwater fish kills using plankton community structure and dynamics. Specifically, this will determine the plankton species present, abundance and diversity in relation with the physico-chemical properties of selected freshwater systems; determine the plankton species most vulnerable to changes of the water quality in the advent and aftermath of fish kill; and review existing policies and regulations in freshwater systems that are most susceptible to fish kills.
