Preliminary Observations On Supplementary Feeding Of Pond Fishes

The food cycle of bluegill and redbreast sunfish was short circuited by direct feeding of dry pellets in an attempt to increase the productivity of small lakes. Automatic fish feeders were constructed and installed in an experimental lake and were programmed to feed specific amounts of Purina Trout Chow at regular intervals. This paper deals with the construction of the automatic feeder and preliminary observations on the growth rate of bluegill and redbreast sunfish.
