Young-of-the-year emerald shiners (Notropis atherinoides) were exposed to mean constant temperatures of 6.9, 11.9, 16.0, 19.8, 24.0, 26.9, 28.9, 311.0, 32.8, 34.9, and 36.7C for 6 wk. Maximum rates of growth and net biomass gain occurred at 28.9C, but these rates were not statistically greater (P greater than 0.05) than those at 26.9 and 24.0C. Death rates were low at test temperatures up to 32.8C but high at 34.9C and above. Natural production of this important forage species would probably be best where temperatures are at least 19C but not above 29C for extended periods.
