During the summer of 1960 a comparative aquatic ecological study was carried out on Third Creek which was to be correlated with an age-growth study of brook trout in progress for the past three years on the same creek. The ecological study was done on both forks (west and east) of Upper Third Creek. All samples were collected from a total of five stations on both forks. The study included mapping, temperature determinations, chemical analyses, benthos, plankton, shore invertebrates, botanical observation and fish studies. Project Number 108.
