Today we traveled to Pymatuning state park to look at the spillway. We watched the masses of fish try to climb over each other so that they could eat the bread that we threw into the lake. After we fed the fish loaves of bread, we learned about how much damage the bread can do in the water. In reality, by throwing bread into the lake we are adding nitrates and phosphates to the water. Adding these things messes up the lake's ecosystem, and in the future this could eliminate most of the life in the lake.
