NORTH AMERICAN JOURNAL OF FISHERIES MANAGEMENT, 21(1), 34–45.

By: . Jackson n & J. Hightower n

TL;DR: Adult striped bass Morone saxatilis perform best when water temperatures are below 26°C and dissolved oxygen levels are above 2 mg/L and will begin to exhibit stress responses at higher temperatures or lower oxygen levels and therefore influence population dynamics and distribution in southern U.S. reservoirs.
