Determination of Production Parameters of Selected Yellow Perch Lines

Project

Determination of Production Parameters of Selected Yellow Perch Lines at Commercial Densities in Ponds at Two or More Facilities in the North Central Region


Project 9


Description


The Ninth Yellow Perch Project .  Chaired by: Hanping Wang, Ohio State University


Objectives:


  1. Using consistent protocols, assess survival and growth rate of two replications of first-year fingerlings of improved lines of Yellow Perch as compares to fingerlings from local brood stock(feed-trained fingerlings to be stocked at 60,000/acre [150,000 fish/ha] )
  2. Using consistent protocols, assess 2nd year survival, growth rate and market parameters (production, filet yields, percent market size) of both replicants of improved lines of Yellow Perch as compared to local fish.
  3. Disseminate results to industry and to end-user customers via fact sheets, scientific publications and an on-farm field day.
