The Lake Shelbyville Fish Habitat Alliance program continues to grow in Shelby County, and the group is using a new tool to help preserve fish habitats in the lake.

 

Ashley Florey is a Natural Resource Specialist with the Army Corps of Engineers at Lake Shelbyville, and she appeared as a guest on our NewsTalk WTIM Morning Show live from our Downtown Shelbyville studios. She says artificial structures have been put in the lake to help with the preservation, and they have given these structures a name.

 

 

These cubes provide fish habitat for those fish in the lake as habitat is lost at the lake over time. Florey says they are looking to get grant money to help with the project.

 

 

Florey says the next day these cubes will be built is July 15th, and anyone interested is welcome to attend and help with the build.
