Abstract: The study covered by this report was initiated because of the wide distribution of Cladophora in western Lake Erie and the possible association it might have with pollution and eutrophication. Little beyond occasional observations has been known about the part this ubiquitous alga plays in the ecosystem. Some believe it to be a relative new-comer that portends increased pollution in the basin, or that it is by itself a prime pollutant. Some are certain that Cladophora in the Lake is directly related to pollution while others feel the relationship is not as clearly understood as some would like to believe
