(funded project 5)


Description


The fifth Sunfish Funded Project.  Chaired by Rob Hayward


Objectives:


1.  Conduct field trials of bluegill and F1 hybrid sunfish (female green sunfish x male bluegill) in commercial size production facilities defined as ponds >0.04 ha and indoor recycle systems in the upper and lower portions of the North Central Region.  A minimum of three replicates will be used in all pond and recycle system studies; commercial feeds to be used will be those identified in previous studies.
