Survival of red drum fry stocked into Christmas Bay, Texas
MetadataShow full item record
Red drum fry (2.5 days old) were stocked into Christmas Bay in May 1979 to enhance native populations. No stocked fish were recaptured in bag seines during 4 months after stocking. Reasons for this apparent lack of success are unknown. However, additional research is needed to determine the feasibility of using fry stocking to enhance red drum stocks.
