Evaluation of the Newly-Developed, Least-Cost Experimental Diet for Bluegill

Project

Evaluation of the Newly-Developed, Least-Cost Experimental Diet for Bluegill at Commercial Densities in Ponds at two or More Facilities in the North Central Region


Description


The fourth Nutrition Funded Project.

Chaired by Dr Joseph E. Morris, Iowa State University


1. Using as consistent protocols as possible across locations, evaluate/determine performance of recently-developed NCRAC least-cost juvenile (3" minimum total length) bluegill diet versus an "industry standard" diet at two distinct latitude locations at standard pond stocking densities for one growing season. Stocking densities to be determined by the investigator(s) and producer(s).


2. Coordinate dissemination of project results with the NCRAC Technical Committee/Extension
