Brine shrimp harvester update

January 19, 2011

Dear Brine Shrimp Harvester

A sampling run on the south arm of Great Salt Lake was conducted on January 18, 2011. The enumeration and analysis have been completed. All presented values are per liter of lake water.

Accordingly, we are officially closing the harvest season pursuant to Rule R657-52-12(3). The brine shrimp harvesting season in the South Arm (both lake and beach) will remain closed and will not reopen after the timeout in effect until Saturday, January 22, 2011. All other aspects of the rule will remain in effect.

All bring shrimp eggs that have been harvested must be removed no later than sunset on February 12, 2011 according to Rule R657-52-13(6). Please make a concerted effort to clean any litter on the shoreline.

Daily harvest reports will not be required except for harvest occurring in the salt ponds and on the North Arm.

The cumulative harvest poundage totals through harvest day January 17, 2011 are listed below:

Thank you for your support of our work at The Great Salt Lake Ecosystem Program.
