Movement characteristics of bigmouth buffalo were determined and used to correct for error in population estimates caused by dilution effect. No gross upstream or downstream movement was observed and one standard deviation of movement from point of release was 1.13 miles based on 60 recaptures. A total of 8,065 individuals were marked. I estimated 81% of the marked fish remained in a four mile study area during the investigation. Models are presented to determine movement and dispersion of marked fish from point of release.
