Summary

These data were used to examine the effectiveness of a non-lethal tool (Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis, "BIA") to estimate the physiological condition of endangered and threatened fishes in the Colorado River Basin. We conducted laboratory trials using hatchery-raised Humpback Chub and Bonytail and wild-captured Roundtail Chub, where fish were subjected to different feeding trials to elucidate a response in physiological condition and different temperature treatments to approximate field conditions. At the end of each 6-week trial fish were removed from tanks, lateral and dorsal measurements of BIA were taken, and fish were sacrificed for proximate composition analysis (lipid, protein, water, ash, dry mass, energy density). We developed [...]

Purpose

These data were collected in the laboratory with the purpose of evaluating bioelectrical impedance analysis as a tool to predict physiological condition in Humpback Chub, Bonytail, and Roundtail Chub. We tested BIA by designing a series of experiments in which all three species were subjected to different diet treatments to elicit a response in condition, after which BIA measurements of resistance and reactance at certain temperatures were taken. Fish were sacrificed for proximate composition analysis and models were developed to evaluate BIA estimates of condition vs. actual measures of condition (via proximate composition analysis). In addition, we collected data on mortality of all three species when exposed to the combined influence of BIA and handling vs. just handling (to take length and wet mass of fish specimens).
