Farm-based Production Parameters and Break-even Costs for Yellow Perch Grow-out in Ponds in Southern Wisconsin

Page

For over 30 years the yellow perch (Perca fla­vescens) has been viewed as a species with great potential for aquaculture in the North Central Region (NCR). The species has been the focus of a significant amount of research over this period, and has been a priority species for research sponsored by the North Central Regional Aquaculture Center (NCRAC) since its inception in 1988. De­spite these efforts almost no information has been available on “real world” produc­tion parameters and costs of raising yellow perch to market size using different system types. The lack of such basic information on production costs has lead to the publication Farm-based Production Parameters and Break-even Costs for Yellow Perch Grow-out in Ponds in Southern Wisconsin.
