An Evaluation of Striped Bass Introductions in the Southeastern United States

Striped bass have been introduced into many inland waters of the southeastern states in an effort to establish a fishery, and to provide a biological control for clupeoid fishes. The Striped Bass Committee of the Southern Division, American Fisheries Society compiled information on the success of past introductions in 1970 and again in 1973. The information collected by the Committee is used to illustrate the successes and failures of introductions of fry, fingerlings, and adult fishes. Variables, other than size of fish at the time of stocking, were tabulated and analyzed to determine their significance in the success of introductions.
