Advancement of Yellow Perch Aquaculture #3

Project

(funded project 3)


Description


The third Yellow Perch Funded Project. Chaired by Terry Kayes   


Objectives:


  1. To compare weight gain, survival, feed conversion, proximate composition, and protein retention of selected northern, southern, and Great Plains strains of yellow perch.
  2. Evaluate survival, growth and feed conversion of yellow perch raised at various loadings or rearing densities in selected flow-through and pond culture systems.
  3. Evaluate the efficacy of using chemicals that block meiosis to induce triploidy in yellow perch, and compare the survival and growth of triploids produced in this manner with that of normal diploids.
