Baitfish Funded Project #1

Description

The Baitfish Project was chaired by Dan Coble.  The objectives of the project include:

1. Conduct a comprehensive survey of the status of the bait fish industry in selected north central states to determine: a. species used; b. sizes of species marketed; c. sources of species; d. seasonal availability; e. shortfalls in supplies; f. relative value of various fish and nonfish species; and g. common problems of the industry that may need to be addressed by research.

Baitfish Funded Project #2

Description

This project is chaired by Joe Morris, Iowa State University.  The following objectives are to be addressed.

1. Determine what techniques and strategies for early season, indoor spawning of golden shiners and subsequent stocking into ponds will result in growth to 76 mm (3 in) by November 1 of that year.

2. Develop economically viable culture techniques and strategies for growing spotfin shiners to a market size (greater than 51 mm [2 in]). Read more about Baitfish Funded Project #2
