The mosquitofish (Gambusia affinis): population dynamics study in small experimental rice plots



The mosquitofish (Gambusia affinis): population dynamics study in small experimental rice plots



Proceedings and Papers of the Annual Conference of the California Mosquito and Vector Control Association 55: 114-118



In early May, 3 quantities (91 408 and 2722 g) of well-fed, predominantly gravid female mosquitofish were introduced into 6.1-msuperscript 2 rice plots, where plankton and immature insects were relatively abundant. The mosquitofish increased at an average rate of 1.4 times per week for the next several weeks, reaching a peak of ca. 42 000 at the end of September. The population growth curves followed logistic curves fairly closely.
