Post stocking survival of largemouth bass reared in raceways on an artificial diet


Progressive Fish Culturist 39(3): 126-127
Post stocking survival of largemouth bass reared in raceways on an artificial diet
Largemouth bass (Micropterus salmoides) that were raceway-reared to a length of 13 cm on Purina Trout Chow were introduced into two 0.04 ha ponds containing fathead minnows (Pimephales promelas), to determine post-stocking survival. For comparison, two 0.04 ha ponds were stocked with largemouth bass of similar size which had been pond-reared on fathead minnows. After 27 days, both groups of bass had gained weight, but a substantially larger percentage of the pellet-fed bass had survived. Bass reared intensively in raceways and fed an artificial diet apparently survive and grow well when transferred to ponds if live food is available and there is no competition from larger predators.
