Abstract
It is known that, given equivalent external environmental conditions, the rate of growth in fish, including T. nigra males in monosex culture, and! the final size they can achieve, is primarily a function of stocking density and perhaps size of pond, presumably acting through the quantity of digestible food available. Apart from stocking density, rate of growth and final size at any given time can be markedly influenced also by the depth of water, turbidity of water, and seasonal variation of environment, all acting in the first place through the effect of water temperature (Part II and IV of this series).
