In September, 1977, an aquatic insect survey of the St. John River drainage was conducted. The objectives were to provide information on the existing fauna in the area of the proposed Dickey-Lincoln School Lakes hydro-electric project and to form the basis for predicting changes in the fauna should implementation of the proposed project take place. The results of that survey form the basis for this bulletin. The only additional information on the fauna of this river comes from a survey of organisms in the gut content of brook trout taken from the St. John River drainage between the Little Black River and Fort Kent during 1975-1976.
