As water dissolves the calcium carbonate, it releases
carbon dioxide into the water. Carbon dioxide plus
water plus sunlight in the chloroplasts of water
plants yield glucose. This basic reaction is the key
to life on our planet, as well as the fish life in
the Hooch. The more carbon dioxide present, the stronger
the food chain, and the better the fishing.
My first thoughts about dumping calcium carbonate
into the river would be the expense. It could be
prohibitive. I don't know, but I'll do some research
Calcium carbonate is the reason and the
Soque is such a great stream. It has a marble/limestone
bedrock, and as a result, a tremendous food base.
Good thoughts Paul!
