I am familiar with latter paper as well. Table by itself hard to make sense of without balance of paper. Some of the viability of crosses between species that are not closely related may be impacted by ploidy issues. You should look at effort to m

It might be sharp to keep some of the young for use as brood to stock another similar pond. There may be some genetic basis for the successful recruitment. Some walleye spawn on submergent vegetation. Reproductive success may also be a functio

Jump to new posts Have you calculated your siphon pipe size? by jonese @ Yesterday at 01:00 PM

I'm curious if anyone knows how to properly size siphon piping and if they could share that info. I'll share the methodology I've been using but the results I'm getting just don't seem right. Based on topo maps I'm looking at just under 12 acres
