Evaluation of Alternative Management Techniques and Systems to Improve Production of Pond-Reared Yellow Perch (Perca flavescens): Modeling the U.S. Catfish Industry
Chaired by Matthew A. Smith
The overall goal of the project is increased consumer awareness of and demand for the locally grown, healthy protein that aquaculture provides resulting in a more resilient, profitable aquaculture industry.
Chaired by Tomas O. Hook
The general focus of this project will be to collaborate with the North Central Regional Aquaculture Center’s (NCRAC’s) Industry Advisory Council (IAC) to develop a sustainable program that will be beneficial for established farmers throughout the Midwest; which will hopefully increase productivity and decrease costs.

The objectives of this funded aquaculture drug project are:
1. Interact with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Center for Veterinary Medicine (CVM) todetermine the data required to validate a determinative method for the AQUI-S® marker residue in fillet tissue from all species of coolwater and warmwater finfish.
Drug Approval Research on 17a-Methyltestosterone
The objectives for the fourth aquaculture drug project, Drug Approval Research on 17-a Methyltestosterone, include:
1.Develop a robust and validated high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) and liquid chromatography-mass spectroscopy (LC-MS) method to measure 17α-methyltosterone (MT) in fish feed.
2.Conduct a series of stability studies on MT in fish feed.
Drug Approval Research on 17-a Methyltestosterone
The objectives for the sixth aquaculture drug project (November 1, 2005 to October 31, 2006) include:
1. Interact with the Center for Veterinary Medicine (CVM) to determine the study design and protocol.
2. Submit the study protocol to CVM and gain acceptance from CVM for the study protocol.
Effectiveness research leading to approvals for controlling mortality in coolwater and warmwater finfish due to aeromonad infections with Terramycin 200 for fish® (oxytetracycline dihydrate) and Aquaflor® (florfenicol).
1. Identify the etiologic agent (Aeromonas spp.) from isolates collected from disease outbreaks in the NCR and characterize the disease syndrome before conducting any effectiveness studies.
