Yellow Perch Recirculating Aquaculture Demonstration and Research Project

Project

(funded project 7)


Description


The seventh Yellow Perch Funded Project.  Chaired by Don Garling.


Objectives:


  1.  Evaluate recirculating aquaculture technology to optimize yellow perch growth, performance (survival, health, feed conversion), and water quality considering such factors as feed management, water replacement, flow rates, and density.


  2.  Conduct "break-even analysis" for raising yellow perch in a recirculating aquaculture system on a commercial scale with a minimum recirculating system size of 18,927 L (5,000 gal) per biofilter, capable of producing a minimum of 11,340 kg/yr (25,000lb/yr).
