Food Of Larval Black Crappies In Relation To Electrical Power Generation. Keowee Reservoir. South Carolina

Food of larval (5.0-10.9 mm, TL) black crappies (Pomoxis nigromaculatus) from Keowee Reservoir, SC, was determined in 1973, before commercial power generation began from a 2,580-MW nuclear power plant, and in 1976 after 3 years of commercial power generation. Although water temperatures were higher in 1976 than in 1973, food of the larvae appeared to be unchanged by operation of the plant. The principal organisms eaten were Diaphanosoma sp._and copepod nauplii.
