Wisconsin Fisheries and Acid Rain
MetadataShow full item record
Acid rain is a reality in Wisconsin. The average acidity of rain in Wisconsin is two to four times that of unpol luted precipitation. The acidity of rain in Wisconsin is generally lower than places in the world where scien tists have recorded dramatic losses of fish popula tions. As Figure 1 illustrates, the acidity of rain is less in northern Wisconsin where our more sensitive lakes are located.
