Contents Notes
Gammarus Zacustris was stocked at a density of 411 animals m-p2s into a 1.8 ha pond with no fish predators. A high mortality rate of 8% da-p1s was attributed to invertebrate predation. Growth rates and brood sizes of the stocked amphipods were similar to those of the parent population. Sex ratio, body size and reproductive stage of adult G. Zacustris were biased by the harvest method and therefore differed between the stocked and parent populations. Stocking of G. Zacustris into ponds as a food organism for fish is feasible if invertebrate predators can be controlled.
