Genetic mutation based on physiological needs or influenced by environment is common. Mutation also occurs due to genetic abnormality is also common. Fishery management, or any animal breeders, took advantage of such occurences to max the dimensions of the sport fish. However, it doesn't mean it's a good thing to do, neither for the sport or for consumption. Selective genes integration for increasing of productivity can be detrimental in the future. But, think about this for a moment. We dump crap loads of pollutants into the water ways all the time. The chemicals will alter the genetic traits of the living ceeatures and mutate the hell out of them. So, I wouldn't be surprised to see more bass that exceed 30lbs threshold. Same goes for various species that exceed their natural weight that nature intend them to max out at in current days.

Interesting read. I'm sure there are a ton of "freak genetic" fish including bass that are already record size. The key is being able to catch them.

u can look at triploid rainbows in canada for an example of sterile fish reaching record weights...and i think that those genetically altered fish still count toward the recordbooks for rainbows...imagine a 42lb rainbow...they're real

Hey Guys,
Hmmmm,.. in my opinion not a very good article. Full of bad science, poor interpretations and even worse assumptions. Without going into a multi page retort, ( which I just deleted), let's just suffice to say that there are so many things wrong with this article as to render it virtually useless.

sorry, just my opinion,...

Interesting read, but I agree.. not much science there. But still interesting speculation!
It's the old argument, Nature versus Nurture. Clearly both genetics have a role, and also the environment (food supply, predators, etc). I'm not sure about actual "MUTATION" that is going to make a freakishly large weird-looking bass..

Basically, we're all just waiting for the Yao Ming Bass?

Interesting read, I'm not really into the why, I just like the tug and the hunt.
