The effect of temperature on growth of young-of-the-year yellow perch was determined over an 8-week period at constant temperatures from 8 to 34C. Absolute growth rates peaked at 28C, but were not significantly less (P > 0.05) over the range from 26 to 30C. Deformities occurred at 32C but at no lower temperatures, and all fish died within 7 days at 34C. A suggested seasonal temperature cycle for yellow perch habitats is presented, based on the data from this experiment for the summer period of rapid growth and on data from previous studies for other life stages.
