Temperature preference tests were conducted on fresh water white perch (Morone americana), collected from the Wicomico River, Maryland. Collection temperature was 27 C and acclimation temperatures used in temperature preference tests were 6, 12, 18, 24, 30, and 33 C. The following methods were used to determine the final temperature preference: linear regression, quadratic equation, and “eyeball” plots. Recorded final temperature preference values were 28.9, 29.3 and 30.6 C using each method respectively.
