Abstract

The effect of fish removal on growth and condition of juvenile white shrimp was studied in two brackish ponds near West Galveston Bay, Texas. In the pond in which fish were removed prior to stocking with shrimp, the shrimp grew more rapidly and were in better condition. Survival of shrimp was also higher in the pond without fish. (Author)
