The Production and Comparative Growth of Three Buffalo Hybrids

Hybrids were produced by crossing the black, smallmouth, and bigmouth buffalo fishes. Growth-rate data for a two-year period are presented. The black x bigmouth individuals showed a pronounced acceleration of growth over that of the other hybrids and their parent spedes. Presented at the 18th Annual Meeting of the Southeastern Association of Game and Fish Commissioners, October 18-21, 1964, Clearwater, Florida.
