The Effect of Increased Sodium Chloride on Striped Bass Fry Survival in Freshwater Ponds

An investigation of the effects of increased sodium chloride concentrations on striped bass fry survival was conducted at the Auburn University Fisheries Research Unit from April 8 to July 7, 1972. The mean survival of fry in ponds with increased sodium chloride concentrations was 7.65% as opposed to 1.70% in six control ponds. The survival in all ponds was highly variable, ranging from 0.33 to 39.50% in increased sodium chloride ponds and from 0.00 to 9.58% in control ponds.
