Seasonal growth rates of mooneye (Hiodon tergisus) from the Assiniboine River



Seasonal growth rates of mooneye (Hiodon tergisus) from the Assiniboine River



Journal FishBd Can: 2078-2082



Length increments, calculated from fish [from the Assiniboine River, Canada] measured at capture and from estimates of back-calculated lengths at time of formation of the most peripheral scale annulus, were used to determine the growing season and seasonal growth rates of mooneye (H. tergisus). Data from 670 fish indicate that mooneye grow rapidly from June to mid-Aug. with little or no growth occurring during other months. Length increased as a linear function during summer. Summer growth rates of 0.89, 0.58, 0.49, 0.44, 0.23 and 0.16 mm/day were estimated for fish aged 1-6, respectively.
