History & Status of the Fishery

A targeted survey of nearshore fish species in Upper Cormorant Lake was conducted on August 22, 2022, by Detroit Lakes Area Fisheries Staff. Data collected during this nearshore survey were combined with trap net and gill net data to calculate a Fish-based IBI (FIBI) score for the lake.

The FIBI Tool-2 was used for scoring and resulted in a FIBI score of 40. The previous score for Upper Cormorant Lake was 27 in July 2017. The impairment threshold score is 45, suggesting that the fish population in Upper Cormorant Lake does not meet expectations for lakes of similar characteristics, and the fish community of Upper Cormorant Lake is affected by disturbances within the watershed or along the shoreline of Upper Cormorant Lake. Data from this survey will contribute biological information about the health of the fish community to the Otter Tail River Watershed assessment process in coordination with MN Pollution Control Agency. The FIBI score, composed of several fish community diversity and composition metrics, indicates the overall health of a lake by comparing it to what is expected for a healthy lake. For additional information on the FIBI, search for "lake index of biological integrity" on the mndnr.gov website.
