The effects of elevated temperatures on reproduction of smallmouth bass M. domonieui were evaluated in large outdoor channels (112 m long; 0.05 ha) in the Tennessee River in Alabama USA the southern limit of the species' native range. Replicated treatment were the ambient temperature of the Tennessee River and 3.degree., 6.degree., and 9.degree. C above ambient (Dec. 1978-Oct. 1979). Peak egg deposition was advanced about 8 days per 3.degree. C increase over ambient but occurred at temperatures (18.degree.-22.degree. C) within the normal range reported for spawning by this species (15.degree.-26.degree. C). Peak spawning time ranged from March 22 in the +9.degree. C treatment to April 16 in the ambient regimen. Duration of spawning periods (11-19 days) in the 4 temperature treatments was similar to those reported for natural populations. Survival rates from egg deposition to emergence from the nest were about 90% in all treatments. A maximum weekly average temperature of 26.degree. C during the spawning season will allow survival of smallmouth bass eggs and larvae. This study indicated that the southern limit of the original range of smallmouth bass was not determined by the influence of temperature on reproduction and that above-normal temperatures would not affect reproduction and recruitment to the extent that low temperatures affect northernmost populations.
