Various stocking rates were tested over a three year period for production of striped bass in culture ponds. Rates ranged from 10,000 to 160,000 fry per acre. Results indicate higher rates produced as high a percent yield as lower rates. Four food types were also tested during this period to determine which produced the best yields. Commercially prepared supplemental feeds did increase production over natural foods. Food habits data support earlier information that Copepoda, Cladocera and Insecta are important food organisms to juvenile striped bass.
