Causes and controls of fresh water drum aplodinotus grunniens mortality during transportation



Causes and controls of fresh water drum aplodinotus grunniens mortality during transportation



Transactions of the American Fisheries Society 111(1): 58-62



The freshwater drum A. grunniens is an abundant and underutilized species in Lake Erie [USA]. Transportation of live fish from commercial shore seines to pay-fishing lakes causes high immediate and delayed mortality during warm summer months. Freshwater drums transported 6 h had 4% immediate mortality and 94% delayed mortality (over 1-2 wk). Salt (5 g/l NaCl), low hauled-fish densities (60 g fish/l water) and late-summer transport significantly (P < 0.05) reduced delayed mortality. Fish tagged after transportation had a significantly higher delayed mortality than those not tagged. Capture stress in seines was a more important cause of delayed mortality than transportation or stocking in ponds.
