Abstract: A pilot survey on the Lower Mississippi River, river mile 480 to 530, was conducted from April to October 1978. The objectives of this field survey were to collect data on fish, benthos, and water quality as they are impacted by the placement and design of navigational structures such as dikes and bank revetments. Information obtained on gear types and procedures from the pilot study was used to design further waterway studies on the Lower Mississippi River. Rationale for selection of sample sites, description of the study area and the 12 habitat types investigated, literature review, and general information on navigational structures are presented in this introductory report. A complete discussion of the fishery, benthos, water quality investigations, and other results of these studies as they relate to the Lower Mississippi River are found in Reports 2 through 8 of this series.
