Chalupnicki, M.A., 2024, Growth of Cisco and Bloater Under Hatchery Conditions 2012-2019: U.S. Geological Survey data release,


Cisco and Bloater growth data from hatchery reared fish were collected in association with a project to repopulate Lake Ontario native prey species. Fish were grown and measured under hatchery conditions for up to nine months before being released into Lake Ontario. Weekly measurements of total length, total weight, and morphometrics were recorded for both species to determine growth during their first year of growth for eight separate year-classes, 2012-2019.

Data were collected weekly for up to nine months to provide information on Cisco and Bloater growth under hatchery conditions during their first year prior to being released into Lake Ontario. This release contains length, weight, and morphometric data on eight separate year-classes from 2012 to 2019 associated with determining optimal rearing conditions for both species.
