Title: Effect of Stocking Density on Growth and Survival of Sub-Adult Tench (Tinca tinca Linnaeus 1758) 
Author: Pantazis, Panagiotis A.
Date: 2012
Abstract: Three hundred and fifty-nine (359) sub-adult tench were allocated to twelve tanks to investigate the effect of stocking density on survival and growth. The experimental population consisted of two weight groups (small = 11.27-11.36 g and large = 15.38-15.44 g) and two initial stocking densities (1.4 kg/m3 and 2.5 kg/m3). The experiment lasted seven months (217 days). The total lack of deformities in the caudal peduncle in all groups and the low incidence of mortality indicate that sub-adult tench cultured in a water recirculation system perform well when stocked at a relatively high stocking density (2.5 kg/m3) and fed 1.0% of their body weight per day. By the end of the experiment, the weight of the best-performing groups increased 83-90% and confirmed the hypothesis that high densities favor the growth and survival of sub-adult tench reared in artificial tanks in a water recirculation system.
