1 All fixed sites were electrofished for cllection of target taxa, 
  no white suckers were captured at our integrator site Passaic River 
  at Two Bridges. We will attempt capture during low flow in FY98.                                                                                                                                                          
2 White sucker were not present at our IFS Great Egg Harbor River at 
  Sicklerville. Chrrek Chubsucker was chosen as the serogate target taxa 
  in coordination with NST personnel.
