Effects of Feeding Regimes and Sources of Fish on Production of Advance Fingerling Striped Bass

Research on the production of advanced fingerling striped bass, Morone saxalitis (Walbaum), was conducted in ponds at Auburn University Fisheries Research Unit in the summer and winter of 1971. Investigations were conducted to determine the effects of two feeding regimes and two sources of small fingerlings on the survival and production of advanced fingerling striped bass. Fingerling striped bass from the Cooper River, South Carolina, and the Savannah River, Georgia, were studied. Higher survival and greater production were obtained from the Cooper River fish. One feeding regime fed hourly, 15 hours per day; the other fed at 3-hour intervals, 15 hours per day. The two feeding regimes were not significantly different.
