Hey - is it true that rotenone only kills specific kinds of fish? I
thought it killed all fish. There is some lake up north where they are
going to use it to get rid of some exotic fish they don't want. I thought
they'd have to restock the whole lake, but friend claims they will only
lose a few of the "good" species.
Huh? You can see how much I know about fish...


Rotenone is pretty much a non-specific ichthyocide...... ie., it'll get them

Now, go look smart!

J. R.'s love line. Talk fish to 'em! It'll get'em every time!
