Fig. B1. Photograph showing the nutrient injection system. (A) Stream water was collected from upstream (black pipes) and held in tanks where it was mixed with the nutrient solution and injected into an irrigation line that ran down the center of the treatment reaches. (B) Stream 8:1 with two mesh enclosures in which larvae were placed for ~3 months. Enclosures allowed water and prey to move freely. Photo Credit: P. M. Bumpers
