Marais des Cygnes National Wildlife Refuge (Refuge) was added to the National Wildlife Refuges system in 1992. During public involvement in acquisition planning, the Service committed to opening the Refuge to recreational fishing. There are several waterbodies on the Refuge which would provide recreational fishing opportunities. These include abandoned coal strip mines, small man-made farm ponds, and the Mariais des Cygnes River and several tributaries to the river. As part of the obligation to provide sage recreational opportunities, an investigation of fish tissues was conducted to ensure that the fish are not contaminated.
