Those who work at Lake Shelbyville continue to do what they can to keep the lake as safe for humans and animals as possible. Part of that work for animals has been done through the work of the Fish Habitat Alliance.
Mike Mounce is a Fisheries Biologist with the Illinois Department of Natural Resources. He says the Fish Habitat Alliance was developed last year as a grassroots effort to help develop extra fish habitat at Lake Shelbyville.
Mounce says as the lake gets older, it loses the natural habitat for the fish. So this organization is helping to artifically restore it.
Mounce says there are multiple aspects of the cubes that fish like, and clustering fish in one area is also good for fisherman.
Mounce appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show live from our downtown Shelbyville studios.
