Fingerling Densities Produced by a Spawning Population of Striped Bass in the Santee-Cooper Reservoir, South Carolina

Densities of fingerling striped bass (Marone saxatilis) resulting from natural reproduction in the Santee-Cooper Reservoir were estimated. Estimates during July and August of 3 years were 3.9, 4.0, and 7.8 fingerlings per hectare, which are much lower than typical reservoir stocking rates. Estimates were derived using a combination of the Petersen method and relative abundance.
