Density Dependence of Fish Growth Rates.


This controlled experiment was conducted at the Bangladesh Agricultural University (BAU), Mymensingh in collaboration with the Faculty of Fisheries between July and September 1996. The experiment focussed upon monitoring the growth of populations of the abundant small species Puntius sophore in 16 holding ponds under varying stocking densities over the flood season with the aim of providing a realistic growth model for exploring the dynamics of floodplain fish populations.
