Anglers are requested to fill out cards listing the date and location of the catch, the fish's length, and whether the adipose fin
Diagnostic features: large, prominent adipose fin
, short rayed dorsal fin and very long barbels.
With circle hooks it was the opposite--more hookups when hooked near the adipose fin
(rear of the dorsal fin).
Body measures were significant correlated with total length (TL), except for base adipose fin
(AF), mouth depth (MD) and eye depth (ED) of immature females (Table 2).

The fish have been clipped on the adipose fin
