- Compare the survival, growth and feed conversion of offspring from selected southern and northern stocks of yellow perch, at different life history stages and at different temperatures.
- Evaluate the survival, growth and feed conversion of yellow perch raised at various loadings or rearing densities in selected flow-through and pond culture systems.
- Improve the efficiency of using heat shock to induce triploidy in yellow perch, and compare survival and growth of diploid versus triploid perch raised to market size.
