Description

Operation World Record: Full Version a more in-depth video of OWR Electrofishing black bass survey at Lake Raven with TPWD for OWR. WHAT IS OPERATION WORLD RECORD? Operation World Record (OWR) is an ongoing research project to evaluate the selective breeding portion of the ShareLunker Program. In the first segment of this project ShareLunker offspring were raised to 6 inches, tagged and stocked into six public reservoirs and a few small private water bodies to compare growth at age 4 to resident bass in each lake. Private lakes were used to control fishing pressure and protect the fish until they reach trophy size. Currently, another study is underway to compare ShareLunker offspring growth to that of our traditional Florida bass fingerlings.
