Culture Technology of Hybrid Striped Bass (HSB Project #5)



The fifth Hybrid Striped Bass Project.  Chaired by Chris Kohler


1. Examine fry (phase I) to fingerling (phase II) production of three strains of white bass and three strains of reciprocal-cross hybrid striped bass in ponds with and without lights and vibrating feeders.

2. Conduct field testing of fingerling (phase II) to advanced fingerling (phase III) production of three strains of reciprocal-cross hybrid striped bass in various culture systems.

3. Extension component:

     a. Coordinate selection of various culture systems and implement field testing (fingerling to advanced fingerling to food size).

     b. Write an initial culture manual using the information generated by all the hybrid striped bass research sponsored by the NCRAC.

     c. Produce associated fact sheets, bulletins, and videos for hybrid striped bass research in the North Central Region.
