Many freshwater ecosystems are experiencing increased algal bloom formation due to cultural eutrophication. Dream Lake, a small water body located in Brown Co, WI, has frequent algal blooms and decreased recreational and aesthetic value. From 2012-2018, biomanipulation approaches of piscivore addition and fertilizer reduction were implemented to reduce algal blooms.
