ABSTRACT. The shallow, warm, and productive reservoirs of Ohio generate large year-classes of prey fish (primarily Gizzard Shad Dorosoma cepedianum), much of which exceeds sport fish consumptive demand. In many reservoirs, then, this excess prey fish biomass could support additional sport fish biomass. Warm surface water temperatures and large hypoxic (dissolved oxygen concentrations,
