This research was undertaken to develop laboratory culture techniques for striped bass (Morone saxatilis) that could be used to provide an adequate supply of various life stages of this important fish species for water quality and hazard evaluation testing. The work includes both an extensive literature review of the data available on all aspects of its life history and a program of laboratory experiments to determine the optimal rearing conditions for each life stage. A comprehensive set of procedures was developed and described in step-by-step manner for use by research personnel wishing to maintain laboratory populations of striped bass for physiological and toxicological use.
