Title: Temperature preference of the white perch, Morone americana, collected in the Wicomico River, Maryland

Abstract

Temperature preference tests were conducted on fresh water white perch (Morone americana), collected from the Wicomico River, Maryland. Collection temperature was 27/sup 0/C and acclimation temperatures used in temperature preference tests were 6, 12, 18, 24, 30, and 33/sup 0/C. The following methods were used to determine the final temperature preference:linear regression, quadratic equation, and eyeball plots. Recorded final temperature preference values were 28.9, 29.3, and 30.6/sup 0/C using each method respectively.
