Effect of Two Feeding Rates on Production of Advanced Fingerling Striped Bass

An investigation of the effect of two feeding rates on pond production of advanced fingerling striped bass was studied at the Auburn University Fisheries Research Unit from June 27 to November 24,1972. The mean survival for fingerlings fed a high feeding rate was 71.87% as opposed to 70.13% for fingerlings fed a low feeding rate. Mean production for fingerlings fed a high and low feeding rate was 266.44 kg/ha and 293.68 kg/ha. respectively. Food conversion for fingerlings fed a high feeding rate was 3.74 as compared to 2.51 for fingerlings fed a low feeding rate.
