Abstract: The objective of this study is to relate the effects of the Kansas River commercial sand and gravel dredging industry to fish population dynamics in the lower Kansas River. The relationship of dredging to the fishery was determined by quantitative measurement of several physical, chemical, and biological parameters of the river during the period 30 May 1979 to 11 December 1981. Areas upstream of dredging activities were compared to a segment of river which is heavily impacted by dredging operations. The cumulative effect of dredging operations was determined by a comparison of data from three dredge sites located progressively farther downstream. The relationship of dredging to the Kansas River fishery is described in terms of present and possible future effects.
