Perca flavescens Although the weight range of stunted and normal perch did not overlap and values had to be extrapolated for stunded fish, the above relationships between fecundity was used to calculate the fecundity of a 100g 'strandard' perch. For the stunted population this hypothetical fish produced approximatively 5000 more eggs (16556 +/-710) than a corresponding female from the normal population (11327 +/-2245).
