Production Of Striped Bass Fingerlings, Morone Saxatilis (Walbaum), On Oklahoma State Fish Hatcheries

Experimental culture of striped bass in Oklahoma State Fish Hatcheries was initiated in 1965. This work has resulted in several procedural guidelines which will enable the successful production of striped bass. The application of these guidelines to production on Oklahoma's antiquated State Fish Hatchery System is discussed. Factors which have influenced the application of desired methods on three State fish hatcheries are: Availability of sufficient water; fertility of ponds; aquatic vegetation; availability of equipment and supplies; quality of hatchery personnel; climate; amount and suitability of harvest equipment. These factors are discussed in relation to the 1969 rearing season.
