Differences in Growth and Catchability of Natural Bass Populations in Florida

Largemouth bass collected from selected Florida locations and stocked in hatchery ponds were studied for growth and catchability differences. Data indicates that some populations grow faster than others and that females grow faster than males. Experimental fishing data indicates that some populations show trends towards greater catchability, but no one population was shown significantly more catchable.
