Advancement of and a Market Study for Walleye Aquaculture

Project

Description


The sixth Walleye Funded Project.   Chaired by Terry Kayes, followed by Bob Summerfelt


Objectives:


  1. Evaluate growth, feed efficiency, and stress responses as functions of density, loading, temperature, and feeding regimes (feeding rate and frequency) under tank and open-pond rearing conditions for raising juvenile walleye to food size.
  2. Characterize the economics and institutional aspects of the domestic market for walleye as food fish, fingerlings, and other intermediate products.
  3. Offer several workshops in the North Central Region using extension materials (fact sheets, videos, etc.) and other information that has or will be developed necessary to demonstrate the technology of culturing walleye and its hybrids.
  4. Complete performance evaluations of walleye x sauger hybrids to finalize research initiated during the June 1993 2-year proposal period, including studies on fillet yield, proximate analysis, and organoleptic properties.
