A Final Report on the Use of Hormones to Ovulate Striped Bass, Roccus saxatilis (Walbaum)

During the 1964 striped bass spawning season, 383 female striped bass were treated with hormones at the Moncks Corner Striped Bass Hatchery and 337 (88%) were induced to ovulate as a result of the treatment. Three hundred and seventeen of the successful females were spawned in the hatchery for a yied of 322 million eggs and a hatch of 100 million fry. Chorionic gonadotropin was the most successful hormone used. Approximately 60 million fry were stocked in the Wateree Reservoir, a 13,710 acre impoundment, and early seining results indicate a significant survival.
