Evaluation of Alternative Management Techniques and Systems to Improve Production of Pond-Reared Yellow Perch (Perca flavescens): Modeling the U.S. Catfish Industry
Chaired by Matthew A. Smith
- Evaluate water quality parameters, fish growth, condition, feed conversion, final length frequencies, survival, specific growth rates, and feeding rates of first-year yellow perch fingerlings (stocked at twice normal rate) provided with either intensive aeration or using an aerated split pond design.
- Collect the economic data of producing first year yellow perch in either an intensively aerated or an aerated split pond design.
- Compare these data to long-term historical pond data (stocked at the normal rate) available from both Millcreek Perch Farm and Brehm Perch Farm.
- To immediately disseminate results to industry via final termination report, fact sheet, presentations, and other information technology transfer strategies.
