Abstract

Growth of four species of fish are compared in three different types of Iowa artificial lakes and reservoirs. The lakes were classified by similarity of physical, chemical, and biological characteristics. Scale samples and total length measurements were obtained from 14,705 fish at 71 impoundments. Largemouth bass, bluegill, black crappie, and white crappie growth was greatest in Group I lakes. Factors influencing differences in growth rate in the three types of impoundments are discussed.
