Summary
Abstract: The organic contents of the sediments in each side channel were sampled twice, and the proportion of organic material in the sediment was determined.

Purpose: These data were collected as part of a larger study that examined the relationships among characteristics of the environment, Tubifex tubifex populations, and rainbow trout whirling disease risk in the Madison River (Montana).

Relevance of this dataset to fisheries managers:

The density of T. tubifex increased as side channel depth and organic material in benthic sediments increased.
