Abstract

The East Brimfield Damn provides a useful location to study the behavioral characteristics of O. Limosus. Samples of O. Limosus were collected and studied in situ as well as in the lab for different behavioral responses related to crayfish movement within the East Brimfield damn area. In situ crayfish movement within the stream was observed to determine general movement within the stream. Lab work was used to study the more basic crayfish response to differential coloring of their environment and burrow preference.
