Supporting and Expanding Aquaculture in the Midwest through Extension and Outreach

Description

The general focus of this project will be to collaborate with the North Central Regional Aquaculture Center’s (NCRAC’s) Industry Advisory Council (IAC) to develop a sustainable program that will be beneficial for established farmers throughout the Midwest; which will hopefully increase productivity and decrease costs.

Chaired by Matthew A. Smith Read more about Supporting and Expanding Aquaculture in the Midwest through Extension and Outreach

Genetically Improved All-Female Walleye (Sander vitreus) For Intensive Aquaculture Production In The Great Lakes Region

Description

We propose to optimize and combine two technologies (e.g., sex reversal and triploidy) to produce walleye Sander vitreus with superior production traits. We will produce gynogenetic masculinized walleye and cross these individuals with walleye females. Resulting zygotes will then be subjected to pressure shock, producing triploid (sterile) all-female offspring.

Target Animal Safety and Dosage Efficacy Studies for Walleye Fed 17-methyltestosterone

Description


The objectives of this study, from July 1, 1996 through December 31, 1997 were


  1. To conduct a Target Animal Safety Study under Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) compliance for walleye fingerlings fed 17a-methyltestosterone.
  2. To evaluate selected dosages of 17a-methltestosterone for effiacy at inducing sex inversion in walley.

Methyltestosterone Feed Stability and Water Biodegradation Studies

Drug Approval Research on 17a-Methyltestosterone


Description


The objectives for the fourth aquaculture drug project, Drug Approval Research on 17-a Methyltestosterone, include:


1.Develop a robust and validated high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) and liquid chromatography-mass spectroscopy (LC-MS) method to measure 17α-methyltosterone (MT) in fish feed.


2.Conduct a series of stability studies on MT in fish feed.

Effectiveness Research Leading to Approvals for Controlling Mortality in Coolwater and Warmwater Finfish Due to Aeromonad Infections with Terramycin 200 for Fish®

Description

Effectiveness research leading to approvals for controlling mortality in coolwater and warmwater finfish due to aeromonad infections with Terramycin 200 for fish® (oxytetracycline dihydrate) and Aquaflor® (florfenicol).

Objectives:

1. Identify the etiologic agent (Aeromonas spp.) from isolates collected from disease outbreaks in the NCR and characterize the disease syndrome before conducting any effectiveness studies.

Baitfish Funded Project #1

Description

The Baitfish Project was chaired by Dan Coble.  The objectives of the project include:

1. Conduct a comprehensive survey of the status of the bait fish industry in selected north central states to determine: a. species used; b. sizes of species marketed; c. sources of species; d. seasonal availability; e. shortfalls in supplies; f. relative value of various fish and nonfish species; and g. common problems of the industry that may need to be addressed by research.

Baitfish Funded Project #2

Description

This project is chaired by Joe Morris, Iowa State University.  The following objectives are to be addressed.

1. Determine what techniques and strategies for early season, indoor spawning of golden shiners and subsequent stocking into ponds will result in growth to 76 mm (3 in) by November 1 of that year.

2. Develop economically viable culture techniques and strategies for growing spotfin shiners to a market size (greater than 51 mm [2 in]). Read more about Baitfish Funded Project #2
