Abstract

The Artificial Floating Island (AFI) was constructed near Tsuchiura Port on Lake Kasumigaura. It measures 92 m long by 9.5 m wide, consisting of 40 smaller segments. Initially, six aquatic plants were vegetated on this structure. After three years, an abundant Common Reed community was established, producing a standing crop of 4,047 kg dry weight for the whole AFI. The AFI also attracted fish and other aquatic animals, including aquatic insects that were more numerous than in control areas. Although the number of species of terrestrial insects was almost the same in all waterside stations, its population in the AFI was smaller than those in other control stations, especially since ground surface insects could hardly be found due to the surface condition of no soil.
